Returning to the Rideau Canal today, I have two bridges, photographed on the last day of Winterlude. This is the Pretoria Bridge, which I've shown before. I've always liked the style of this lift bridge.
The second bridge is a short walk away. This is where an inlet of the Canal starts, at this bridge for one of the parkways that follow the Canal. It's called Patterson Creek, and it's a pretty good spot for skaters who want a quiet area away from larger bodies of skaters. As you can see, at this point in the day the sky was changing; to the east there was still blue sky, while the sky to the west was getting overcast. We were in for a serious snowstorm the following day- I'll have photos of that next week after the Winterlude series is over.
