The other day, we had our lunch in a picnic spot on the Ottawa River. A fresh breeze was blowing keeping the temperature just perfect. The windy weather had stirred up silt in the river so the water has a brownish tinge to it, but the water is clean. If you click to open to the full width, you can see the gap where a bridge spans between Ontario and Quebec.
Being near the river always makes me think of the early fur traders who used this waterway as a highway to take them to the St. Lawrence River.
