On The Edge... Again
The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.
Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.

Today was the first day of skating after the schools let out for the summer. It was quite a bit more crowded than I am used to and the ice was not cut very well. There were bumps on the end by the Zamboni and as always ... the hockey players hack up the ice pretty good.
I was skating out of guilt today. My Monday lesson was cancelled due to summer scheduling conflicts and I didn't get on the ice all week. I merely went to stretch my legs today.
With all the people skating I had to put my camera behind glass and I only had the center ice to work on anything I wanted to capture on video.
Here's a few spins and a jump or two:
