It was a frigg'n cold day, but the ice was in good shape. Skated the full length, out and back - 15km or so. Got to the gym and hit the weights afterwards to warm up after getting pretty cold in the windchill.
|Potty on ice. Really?!? Is a sign really necessary?|
|Skating can work up an appetite. Beavers . . . that intrusive pest of a rodent which can cause extensive damages. In destroying the pesky animals we Canadians have come up with an ingenious way to take advantage of the yummiest part of the beaver, it's tail . . . mmmm, Beaver Tails. You'd think that they'd be all leathery and tough, when actually they melt in your mouth.|
|Mmmmm . . . Poutine.|
|End of the canal - 7.8 km worth of ice.|
