Skating in Cairns??

Thurs. Sept 29 - Skating??

Went to Edgehill Primary School to go ice skating.  They had set up a temporary rink in a big shed, and charged $15 for 2 hours of skating and skate rentals.  It was 31 degrees outside, so hot that the ice was melting and there was a layer of water on top.  If you fell, you were extremely wet!

Due to the fact that not many people in Cairns get a lot of opportunities to practice skating, we were some of the few people who were in the center of the arena, rather than along the boards!  People were pointing at Hailey and commenting  on how good 'that little one' was.

Just like riding a bike!
They seemed to have run liquid ammonia through the pipes to make and keep the ice cold.  But the metal roll up walls were too hot to even touch from the inside.
lots of open space for jumps & spirals

It was definitely something to experience and we even signed a petition to get a permanent rink in Cairns.
