This is near the start of the canal and it is always very busy and crowded with skaters. The further you go, the more space you have to spread out.
This is one of the rest stations with with the trees and snacks and there is usually a fire with benches as well. A similar location plays a role in my next post.
It's lovely when it's that smooth and empty. However this skating rink is at Mother Nature's mercy, you have to beware of large cracks, lumps, bumps and holes which can send you sprawling if you're not paying attention, but it's still amazing to skate outdoors like that. I've never skated the whole route though. Maybe someday.
I just love this little bridge. So up next, Omar and Lucas are going to stop by for a visit and share their Valentine's Day outing at Winterlude.
