Pond Skating.

image

Believe it or not, the above picture is Boca Lake (near Truckee, CA) completely frozen over.  While visiting with my good friends recently, they took me to go pond skating which was SO much fun.  They get to go pretty often and have some friends they play around on the ice with.  They had some extra skates that fit so I got to even do some skating.  This was a first for me but I love being outside and used to love ice skating when I was a kid!

Here’s Emily and I playing pass with some hockey sticks and a puck.

The ice was beautifully crystallized.  I’ve never seen anything like it!

image
We skated all the way out to the middle of the lake, it was unreal.

image
Can you imagine having an entire lake to ice skate on?  It was pretty great.

image
I was worried I may have forgotten how to skate but it’s just like riding a bike, it comes right back.  Although it did take some time to remember where my balance needed to be.

image
There wasn’t much snow but I also was able to check out Squaw for a bit.  The lines were short and it was spring like conditions.  It turned out to be pretty fun!

Anytime spent in the mountains is well spent, especially if you get to do it with friends 🙂

Also, we hope you take a moment today to remember Martin Luther King.  With everything going on in our country, it’s important to remember him and what he stood for.  Hope you all had a great weekend!

Outdoor Outing.

imageThis weather has been too good to not take advantage of and we have another beautiful weekend coming up!  Last weekend we headed out to Mt. Tam and Stinson Beach for a full day of sun and beautiful surroundings.  What else can you ask for?!  I definitely recommend it for any fellow bay area friends.

Don’t miss out on taking advantage of one of the most beautiful areas in the country when the weather is nice.  We all know the fog is just around the corner 🙂
