Old fashion Canadian pond hockey. In the summertime this a boat docking area at the local marina.
You can see the dock and the hookup box for water and electric power.

  1. S.C. it is a portable hockey net. They are able to be easily carried and moved. In Canada the kids use them a lot for street hockey.

  2. I always wondered why the dutch don't play this game, we always had ice, but everybody only skates around or make tours through the country over rivers and lakes. Maybe it is more an american play, kind of difference of culture or traditions. This looks like a nice way to use the ice for a game.

  5. Now that's the place to play the game, (as long as the ice is frozen thick and solid).

  6. Funny scene, the beginning of a ice hockey career.

  8. This looks like a good alternative to cabin fever in that cold, cold weather. I've always liked hockey more than the U.S. football.

    (BTW: my post today is pussy willows. They're about the earliest sign of spring plant life in these parts.)

  10. Our marina is too full of swans for this to happen! But I have seen a few rinks set up out by the Botanical Gardens in the canal.

  13. I remember those days. Growing up, I lived at the top of a hill leading to one of the town's best ponds for skating and hockey. I was a basketball player, not a hockey player, but every now and then I joined in on a game like this.
