Cold-weather records were broken around New England on Sunday, but that didn’t stop one man from getting some creative outdoor exercise. 

Married couple Peter and Sandra Lekousi were going for a short stroll Sunday evening along the wide-open Long Sands Beach in York, Maine, to take photos when they spotted a man ice skating — yes, ice skating — on the beach.

“It was freezing cold — too cold for us to be on the beach — and he was skating on the beach,” Sandra said in a phone interview, adding that the water was “all slush.”

“We had never seen that before,” she said. “And he was a really good skater.”

The couple stopped to take a video, which Peter uploaded to his Facebook page. By Monday afternoon, the video had more than 1,500 views. In the post, Peter told his followers that if anyone knew who the skater was, to tag him on Facebook.

“I keep trying to tell you all, every day is a beach day in Maine,” he joked in his post.

The National Weather Service said cold weather records were broken Sunday in Portland, Maine, at minus-12 degrees. Records were also broken in Worcester (minus-9), Providence (minus-3), and Hartford (minus-9).

Shibutanis sizzle to win short dance at nationals .
The ice should sizzle when dancing to a Latin beat. Maia and Alex Shibutani made sure it did Thursday to outdistance their top competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Not that Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, or Madison Chock and Evan Bates weren't smokin'. Far from it as all three couples staked early claims to the trio of berths available for Americans at the Pyeongchang Olympics next month.With hefty competition from French and Canadian duos, only one podium spot is likely to come the Americans' way. All of the U.S. contenders belong in consideration after their latest performances.
