Having a Blast

Sunday after church my family went down to East Coast Park and rented skates. My daughter got roller blades, but I got these ginormous things.

They're called quadline skates, and they strap onto your own shoes, which is a benefit for me, as my arches are falling and most skates don't really have arch support. My Keen shoes do, though.

These skates have huge wheels, and the wheel base is extra wide for better stability. I had such a blast on these. We skated for an hour and a half, over a kilometer, with plenty of rest stops along the way. My husband jogged alongside us or ran off taking pictures.

Those are ENORMOUS but look like just the thing. I hope I get to see these in action. I guess I'll check out Terry's pics.
