Last weekend we went skating at Oathill Lake. Dartmouth has many small lakes and when the conditions are right the stating is just great. The ice was fabulous that day. Nothing beats outdoor skating; and this lake is large enough to accommodate hockey games, people who are just out to skate as well as families playing.
Oathill Lake is a small lake in an urban setting. It doesn’t garner the use or attention of a larger lake like Lake Bannook – it is a quieter place. The area neighbourhood has formed the Oathill Lake Conservation Society.
We had a grand time and depending where you live you can walk or drive.
There were a large number of strange stars in the ice. Perhaps caused by test drills for ice fishing??? More pictures can be found here.
