Hockey Day in Annapolis Royal

Well, if I need to explain how today's images are related to heritage, I will assume you have probably not spent much time in Canada in the winter. Some activities are heritage related by their nature and, in my mind, skating is one of them. There really is nothing to compare to skating outside on a clear, crisp day. The wind and fresh air add a great deal to the experience.

These photographs were taken earlier today on the French Basin in Annapolis Royal. The ice is about nine inches thick today so there is no fear of going for a swim. There is a little bit of crackly ice on the surface so you still need to watch out since your skates may dip a bit as you are going along. On the whole it was good skating and a whole lot of fun. If you have the opportunity, this is a great way to spend an afternoon.

All for now,
RGS
