Last Friday night, Jason and I went ice skating at an outdoor rink in Brisbane at King George Square. It was for an event called Winter Festival.
It is such a novelty to go ice skating seeing as we're not the coldest place in Australia. So it was packed with people. They have food stalls, a bar area and a place giving out free chai tea.
The rink and the orange ice skates everyone wore.
My ice skates. I'm actually not too bad of a skater but it was pretty much impossible to get any real speed because of the amount of people. I found it harder to skate because I had to go slow.
My wonderful hubby Jason. He had to go straight from work.
Me partially rugged up, but it wasn't even one of the colder nights in Brisbane but I was partially sick and didn't know how cold it would be.
I'm so bummed that we didn't take the camera onto the ice. People were taking all these photos and I was wishing I had mine. They even had some fake snow for a bit and it felt incredibly romantic. So we took a pic with the rink behind us afterwards.
I had to take a photo of the City Hall clock. The whole building is so beautiful all lit up at night.
I call this the gingerbread house. It's really an old church. I think it's pretty.
So we had a wonderful time. It was nice to finally have a date night with the hubs because he's been working so much. He's had to bring it home too and it can be lonely to have him home but not being able to do anything.
Hope you're week is going well.
