Just me and my shadow. A sunny blue sky, air temps in the low 60s and not another skater in sight. But, sadly, the puddles of standing water said "not today bucko". We went to the open air rink at Quiet Waters park this afternoon full of hope and the promise of "California" skating conditions only to discover that while skating had been in full swing that morning, the warmng temps caused a mid-day suspension of activities. We went for a walk on the park's woodland paths instead. I think the rink did reopen around 5 pm but we had other promises to keep. The season is young. Next time.
