Elizabeth had piano after school but since it wasn't too cold and the canal was open we reckoned it would be fun to get there on skates instead of driving.
So Elizabeth and I skated from Patterson to Bank Street bridge - as far as we could go! One of her classmates was really confused as to why she had skates with her. "It's not time to play hockey", he kept muttering darkly. "I just skated to music, that's all" responded Elizabeth airily.
