I am so jealous--that is AWESOME!! We love ice skating. I'm too scared to take the kids on our lake but a couple of times some flood water (just a foot or so deep) has frozen in the park making a perfect and safe pond.
I probably wouldn't do it either if it was a lake, even though everyone has their vehicles and huts on the lake for ice fishing. I'm only comfortable because it's a little golf pond. Can't wait to get a pair of ice skates and try it for real !! Probably won't be taking videos, as I'm sure it won't be graceful.
