Skating in Vevey

At the start of winter they set up an ice-skating rink in the main square of Vevey, and every time we walked past it we kept saying that we should have a go.

It was meant to finish up at the start of March but it got an 'extended season' so we figured we better get around to it before it finally closed up shop.

I think it is safe to say we are not natural ice-skaters; even with all my rollerblading experience the ice still seems quite strange and difficult to get used to.

Anyway there was a wild storm raging outside, and the sun kept peaking through the clouds over the choppy lake making for a very dramatic setting.

We finished up just in time before a group of helmet-clad children to come onto the rink, no doubt to do a better job of skating than us. Anyway, for us the important thing is we got on and gave it a go!
