Perfect weather for some more Cross Country Skiing practice.
We went out Saturday (5/2/2011) to try out this Cross Country Skiing lark.
I think the idea is to stay on your feet and move forward!!!
Well let us just say Hanneke and I will not be representing Australia in Cross Country Skiing at the next winter Olympics.
It was not the venue - Bud Miller Park is a beautiful place to ski around.
It was the not the equipment - recommended by our resident Cross Country Skiing expert - Glen Thompson.
|Umm, perhaps you have to have a ski on both feet to move!|
|Look, I can stand up on these things.|
It was such fun we went out the following day, Sunday, to see if we could actually move with skis on our feet. This time we tried the local golf course.
|If you wear a face mask people cannot see who is making a fool of themselves trying to Cross County Ski.|
Would you believe it Michael only fell over twice and Hanneke is now in training for the 2018 winter Olympics!!
|I know my golf ball is here somewhere.|
|Only seven more years until that gold medal.|
|One small step for a Canadian one giant ski for an Australian.|
Next hospital threatening adventure - Curling!!
