taken by me today using a Sony NEX F3 with 18-55 lens
It is interesting to keep returning to the same spots through the four seasons. Today I noticed that with all the foliage down, I could now see from a slightly different position a view of the Sturgeon River, little more than creek sized, that during the full grown season was invisible. This section of the river was the water supply for a 17th century Huron village. A haunting spot.
Smooth run today. Sloppy drive in this morning, with rain and a lot of moisture flying around from passing cars and trucks. Temp was just above freezing. I was out of there by 1150am.
I read from my IBook file of Tracy Kidder‘s My Detachment, his Viet Nam service. I first encountered one of his books a long time ago, Soul of a New Machine, about the development of an early mini-computer. He is a great American writer or non-fiction.
Back for more dialysis tomorrow at 1215pm until 1630pm.
Friday morning dialysis from 715am to 1145am.

Earlier in December this year the bay had begun to ice over almost completely but then the daytime temperature rose above freezing and the ice changed state back. Colder temperatures returned since this shot and the ba y is iced with a thin solid cover as of Dec. 29th.
If there is a more peaceful village than Coldwater, Ontario, I would be surprised. The Coldwater River flows through town and north to Georgian Bay. This spot is very very close to the “downtown core” of the village. I took this shot standing on an old Bailey Bridge section. Some wonderful large. old wood and brick homes along this part of the river.
In September, Coldwater has one of the best fall fairs in central Ontario. Just across Hwy 12 at the south end of the village is the Coldwater Canadiana Museum, small but delightful.
