And now I'm quoting Stonewall Jackson for post titles. Go figure.
The Credit River descends from headwaters on the Niagara Escarpment, flowing down to Lake Ontario. It's a river I've known quite well, as I grew up not far from where it flowed through Halton Region. Here in Peel Region, the Credit passes through Streetsville. This footbridge crosses the water, which is largely open in this stretch of the river.
My aunt and uncle live a short stroll away from this bridge, up at the top of the valley. They walk in this area most days.
Below the bridge, morning sun lights up the open water and the ice lingering here. Ducks and geese make good use of the water.
I have mentioned before that Canada Geese seem to be cowards for bolting as far as they can south when the first frost shows itself. These ones, at least, stick around north of the border.
I will have to come back to this place again to show you the river in other seasons.
Tomorrow we get started on Winterlude...
