Who is Nathan Phillips?

Donna really wanted to go back to New York City to skate outside at the Rockefeller centre before she went back to Australia. As we reached the end of our time here though, it quickly became apparent that we were running out of both the time and the money to all travel back to NYC, and so Donna's dream of doing some outdoor skating amongst the snow and the lights was somewhat dashed.

Instead, we discovered that Toronto has its very own outdoor skating rink in winter. Called Nathan Phillips Square, the rink is not exactly the Rockefeller Centre but it does have some pretty lights and a great community atmosphere. Unfortunately we haven't had any snow yet so there was not the white Christmas feel we were after, but we decided to drive into Toronto the other night for a look anyway. Kate was not feeling 100% and so we decided not to actually skate in the cold night air, but instead just parked nearby and checked it out.

The verdict was that it was a very nice way to spend an evening, and if we get a decent snowfall before I go I might even try to get back in there myself for a skate. For now though, it was not to be for Donna and the kids. Might have to plan that other NYC trip after all!
