Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Christmas skating rinks

At the beginning of December a number of skating rinks appear in all kinds of places. This one is outside Somerset House. Everyone seemed to be having such fun.

There was also a beautiful Christmas tree to admire.

  1. I live in Florida so our skating rinks are inside ;)... I used to love to skate however when we lived in Alaska. Thanks for stopping by my place and visiting.

  2. I love ice skating. Where I grew up, winters were cold and we'd shovel the snow off a frozen pond for skating. Where I live now, the only ice skating rinks are in shopping malls...

  5. There are few more picturesque scenes during the wintry days than groups of people skating in ponds. It is such a carefree thing to do amid the bustle of day-to-day life.

  6. Very nice! Our rinks won't show up until the weather gets quite a bit colder. And then we have one right downtown. I'll take a picture if I can. Yours is much prettier! :-)

    London-town is looking beautiful.

  9. Ice skating in the open air is such an alien concept downunder at Christmas!!! But it looks like fun!!
