The Ben Lomond Skate Park
I got up early this morning and went skating. About three miles up highway 9 from where we're staying in Felton (which is just up 9 from Santa Cruz) I found this cool skate park. There were a couple of kids already there and they were really nice. It's funny I skated okay when I got there, but I swear I got more confident and skated better after talking with the kids and seeing that they were friendly. Then they left and I skated better still. I had a blast. When some new folks showed up, a father son, and they were totally cold I started to feel kinda clumsy. It's weird how much stuff like that affects you. Skate like no one's watching, to co-opt the cliche. Skating is a great way to start the day. I wish the Sacramento park opened earlier. I may hit Ben Lomond again tommorow.
