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 […]

Easter Bunny Skate

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 […]

Another tour of the city

2016-11-13-skate-5-of-16

Just a chill Sunday skate through the city, reminding me why I love it here. For starters, the shopping list here. I need: coffee weed smokes … I dig the order of things here. Highschool, I’m guessing? Attack dog here. Zen with satellite dishes. Why does nobody eat the berries?? We just be chill’n here […]

Why skate?!

img_0825

Why do I skate? I’m not going to blabber about the workout value, or the social value of getting out to spend a few hours with friends. No. I’ll go straight to getting to know your city.  We skated to Navy Yard, again. What’s the value of going to the sample place over and over? Well, […]

North Philly and otherwise Philly skate

2016-11-06-skate-16-of-21

Sunday skates are chill[er] than otherwise, so today was pretty relaxing.  Weather was gorgeous, with some gusts of wind. We skated through North Philly and then returned into the city; and I wanted to share with you contrasts of both the colors and the buildings.  I really think Philly’s North side is the up-and-coming area […]
