I got to Clearwater around 11 PM where Alice was waiting having been given a fifteen minute warning.
This morning, Alice, the girls and I took a very local bus to the skating rink. We all borrowed skates. Each with her or his level of skill set out on the ice, the girls with the help of three sided plastic stands and the close assistance of Alice in Kerry's case. I had wondered about at Kerry skating but I assumed that this was routine for Alice and therefore said nothing. Kerry seemed happy through her concentrated face. It was only afterwards that I found out it was Kerry's first skate! I felt privileged to have witnessed the event and glad to have caught it on camera.
