Ice Skating at Skyline Park and Hot Chocolate at Starbucks

Monday smelled like winter had arrived, finally. I've been waiting, patiently, for it to arrive. The nice weather had been wonderful, but I really like a change of seasons, too.
Ellie thought it would be fun to go skating downtown at the skate rink in Skyline Park in downtown. It is sponsored by Southwest Airlines. It was pretty cool.

The zamboni was painted to look like an airplane, complete with a rear ruder. I'd like to drive one some time.

I was happy to find that there were tall tables and stools where I could knit while enjoying watching the skaters.

Afterward we stopped at a nearby Starbucks for some peppermint hot chocolate - a lovely, smooth and tasty treat.

I tried to capture some of the fun and festive lights we saw on the way home. The camera just could not capture that magic.
