While visiting friends in a Northern Californian suburb, we went to the Kristi Yamaguchi Holiday Ice Rink in San Ramon. San Ramon is 40 miles east of San Francisco and seems like an odd place for an ice skating rink but it turns out Kristi Yamaguchi lives close by with her family. With California's moderate climate, we were able to enjoy a morning skate in the sun with short sleeves on during the winter. We were lucky enough to even spot Kristi skating on the rink on a regular Sunday morning. There was no planned special event but Kristi was there with her family celebrating her daughter's birthday.
