Yesterday was Friday the 13th, one of my favorite days because I always loved watching the horror movies that would play. Since I don't get that luxury anymore, I decided to go ice skating after work. I went ice skating in the evening and it was beautiful to watch the sunset as I ice skated. I'm also getting better with ice skating.
Before I rented my ice skates and before I was allowed on the ice. I loved walking around taking pictures of Penns Landing.
After strolling around Penns Landing, I decided to go into the "cabin" or sitting area to pray. After prayer, I loved admiring the decorations and took pictures while I waited for my time slot to get onto the ice to become available. The sessions are an hour and a half; my session was from 5-6:30 PM. I sat in the "cabin" for a half an hour.
Before I went onto the ice.
I was so excited when it was my time to get onto the ice. However, I didn't tie my skates tight enough and one of the aides had to help me off the ice to tie my skates tighter. I'm thankful for his assistance and after he tightened the skates, I had a blast. I only fell three times (still sore), but I flew through the air while gliding along the ice.

as I gently glide on ice;
maybe not-- fall, ouch!
What a fun time. I am surprised with how quickly I caught on and I'm surprised with how fun ice skating really is! Future Maple Leafs player right here! (I wish!)
