The Outdoor Rink

There is something about an outdoor rink that makes lacing up a pair of skates even more great. I spent  most of my childhood playing competitive rep hockey and only until a few years ago I swore that I would never play, watch or have anything to do with the sport again. Fast forward to present day and my love for the sport is stronger than ever. I often wish I would have stuck with it but its best to look into the future rather than the past. Today I got on the ice for the first time in 2013 at a beauty outdoor rink around the corner. 
Off come the boots on come the skates.
Always love wooden boards.
Has seen a puck or two.
Fence = less searching for pucks.
Can't always hit the net.
New Graf skates that I got from my lovely lady for Christmas. I had stubbornly been wearing the same pair of Grafs that I got over ten years ago. It's hard to give up your favourite skates but it sure does feel nice to have a pair that fits.
