The 21st Day of Christmas

iceskaters

I'm kinda' old fashioned when I think of ice skating thus the B/W picture. I learned to skate on a frozen pond in the neighborhood with lumps and cattails protruding through the icy surface not in a climate-controlled rink and perfectly flat ice that was resurfaced every couple of hours. You used a log to sit and put on your skates instead of a bench but it was great. Don't get me wrong, rinks are fine but there is something special about the way nature provides the fun.

I love watching skating. Did you know Sonia Henie filmed part of one of her movies in the ice caves near Twin Falls Idaho?

I did not know that.

I've been in them, it's a huge cavern with most of the main room a solid sheet of ice, and heavily lit by lanterns.

Sounds beautiful. I love caves. I've never been in an ice cave.

I haven't skated in years but I enjoyed it as a teenager.

I loved ice skating until I'd fallen too many times. (and I did that a lot! *g*) Since there's no rinks here (not when I was young anyway) we had to depend on nature providing the ice as well. Always had a lot of fun!

I've fallen a lot too. I'd be a little leery to do it now considering the shape my knees are in now.
