Cootes Paradise

On Sunday, we went skating on Cootes Paradise. 

There were lots of people skating on the bay as there are most winter weekends.  I've lived here for 4 1/2 years, and this was the first time I actually made it out there (it was one of my goals for this winter).  People shovel little rinks, and you can skate out as far as you like.  No fee, no insurance freak-outs, no guard rails.  Old school.

Sunday feels like an awful long time ago.


  1. Cool. very very cool.

    and btw.. my pass word is teasiti. mixing some language up, in a stretch and construe world, this might be "tease and you". Like showing the adorable images and bringing new meaning to 'free skate'

  2. I tried skating for the first time a few years ago in High Park and was astonished to discover that the ice wasn't flat at all. I didn't feel the freedom at that point but I guess I understand what you mean!

  3. hmmm. If the shoveling were done for me, I'd do it.

  4. Looks beautiful... and cold! Glad you guys had fun!
