Today's tale takes us to the Lachine Canal Swing Bridge. No longer in operation, the Swing Bridge once swung at a 90 degree angle, interrupting rail travel in order to let boats through the canal. On one September evening in 1908, a boy dressed in a short pantsuit attempted to cross to the other side of the canal by hopping on the bridge as it swing to the other side. When he attempted to leap off on the south side he missed and was crushed by the swinging bridge before the bridge operator could stop it. Legend has it that the figure of the young lad can be seen around the bridge, along the canal or the adjacent Wellington tunnel.
"Ghost forest" Hurt. The aftermath of the wild fire. But alive. I wandered in green among the bleak colourless burnt forest. It is a symbol of hope but also sorrowful because of all the life lost. My hands dirty with ash because I call for responsability. we saw many glass bottles and garbage that could easily ignite fire in hot weather. Some say wildfires are also part of Nature but the rate and number of fires increases steeply far beyond natural numbers due to heat wave an climate change and our own negligence. Be also careful and respectful and avoid born fires if the forest is dry. Let the lightning do its work but human hand has nothing to do with equilibrium. Sorry end of the preaching but had to. Hope it is food for thoughts.

Destiny here, my co owner doesn't post anymore. I need a new one, there can be multiple. DM me. You'd post pics like I do sometimes. The old one had to quit. 😂 Sorry no one posts often, I'm actually really busy and she said she's having problems with Instagram and can't post anymore.
