Philly Free Skate, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-06-16 at 9.57.00 PM

With many thanks to the wonderful organizers of the Philly Free Skate,  I am exceedingly happy to be able to participate in this event this year (I’ve missed it for number of years due to work travel). This year, of course, the event was full of slightly wet skating and other kinds of fun.  We […]

Odunde festival (skate-through)

Screen Shot 2017-06-12 at 10.10.50 PM

There is a wonderful Festival that happens, unfortunately, only once a year. Odunde is a wonderful place to be at.  I am frequently amazed that some of my friends have never heard of this festival. Come on! It happens every year and it’s been happening for quite a few years. You absolutely have to come […]

Kinetic Sculpture Derby skate

Screen Shot 2017-05-24 at 7.05.57 PM

Every year there is a “Kinetic Sculpture Derby” here in Philly. Today we skated through it. As a matter fact, there is a skate-through-it every year; or at least that’s what my memory tells me. I tried to look for photos but I can’t seem to find any on my computer; I guess they’re gone somewhere. What I […]

We are all children.  Yep, there I said it!  We are just little 3- or 4- year old boys and girls, trying to have a bit of fun… No, please, do try to disagree with me, please.  What would you give to be able to strap on some bunny ears and hop around the city […]

Cherry blossoms skate

I love spring in Philadelphia.  This city is one of the greener ones that I’ve been to: lots of parks, etc.  When the city blooms every spring, life here is just flabbergastingly great. Today we had planned a “Cherry Blossoms skate” but, alas, there were far fewer of those than I had expected. Just compare […]

Spring in February? Skate!

2017-02-25 skate (7 of 8)

Can you believe it?! It was 72 F this morning, now is 55 F and tonight will be 36 F… This weather is very confusing… We went our for a skate around Philly and I figured I’d share some photos from the different places we went to. Next time come out and play with us! […]

Saturday skate

screen-shot-2016-11-26-at-1-30-32-pm

Another Saturday skate through the not-so-warm streets of Philadelphia.  It was a bit windy but otherwise not-too-bad of a 50ºF day. An interesting highlight for me was noticing the interesting way to position the parking sign for the Wanamaker building: Otherwise, the skate was fairly predictably awesome, without any major highlights: If you own a […]
