Today Fiona and I discovered two of our favourite things in the same place: night-time outdoor skating, and a café. What fun! We haven't flooded our backyard rink this year because somehow it takes me a couple of years without to work up to the purchase of an expensive new liner. But this is almost as good -- and it's right on our route to Nelson. We had the rink to ourselves and watched the stars come out, especially the Butterfly Constellation (a.k.a. Orion) and then when we were red-cheeked, refreshed and tired all at the same time, we went and grabbed a hot drink to fortify us for the ride home. Fiona's favourite steamer, chocolate-mint, was apparently quite delicious in her new travel mug.
