The main date for Valentine's was planned by Andrew and he surprised me by taking me to the Ice Station in Valencia (Actually I managed to get him to tell me where we were going ahead of time!) After church we headed off to the rink and hopped on the ice! It had been a really long time for both of us so we both had our turn to fall, but before long we were happily gliding along!
In fact, after a while I felt I needed to outdo myself and slowly figured out how to skate backwards! I think I'll need to practice more though before I am brave enough to move away from the wall...
Part of the sweetheart package was hot cocoa and cookies, but after our snack Andrew's feet were all blistered up so he took the camera and I spent the last few minutes on the ice. All in all we had a great time and discovered this could be one thing that Andrew and I would love to do more often together!
Just before we left, we took a look at a few of the other rinks and saw some Ice Hockey games going on. Andrew is quite used to this but I think this may be the first time I've seen someone play it! I suppose it can't be surprising though, since I am from sunny South Africa!
