I took these shots looking east and west from the Bank Street Bridge over the Canal while the ice was open for skaters one day.
These shots date back to the second to last evening that the Canal was open for skaters, down at the south end of Dow's Lake. A sign includes the pathway of the Canal skateway- this location on the map is at the left, where you see the loop going up from the main part of the course.
Aside from a skate changing shelter and a few eateries on the ice here, there was also a fire burning.
This, caught in evening light, is a small sleigh you can rent up at the pavilion at the north end of the lake. It's handy if you've got a couple of kids, or an adult, who don't skate themselves. A skater can simply push the sleigh along the ice.
I figured I'd include one of the Beavertails signs, which includes the various ways you can eat the pastry.
And this shows the line of eateries and the shelters here.
