This shot makes Easter Sunday skating look relatively tame, but the grass out of shot both to my right and left was packed out with lookie-loos and skaters taking a load off. By the end of the afternoon, someone had even pitched a small tent for those who wished to get out of the sun. There were a few regulars whom I recognised. We chatted during breaks on the bench.
Our man in the foreground, lovely though he may look, pays no mind as he swirls and twirls and occasionally loses his conical hat while grooving about the pavement. One must often swerve around him in order to avoid collision. He is fun to watch, however, from the sidelines.
The ladies in the middle of our informal skate rink were performing choreographed dance moves to disco music. Many of them were kitted out with bunny ears, wee skirts/tutus & fun hosiery. It was a treat to watch them and even more fun to skate around in circles for a good portion of the afternoon as they did their thing.
|Early in the day. Note the California flag someone brought with.|
