Ottawa River, ON - Chris Cobb
My Watermark is the Ottawa River, Ontario.
I’ve run alongside, I’ve ridden alongside it, and I’ve irritated people I’m biking with because I always slow down to take it in as opposed to just peddling on and on. It is for me a great place to look out. And it changes everytime you pass it: it depends on the time of day, the time of year, the weather, but it is an ever changing scene. In a way, the scene flows as the river flows.
I’ve been going to the river for 15 years and I’ve seen a lot of change, but it’s change for the better. It’s become more of an agreeable pathway for example, and there’s been efforts made to make it so, and I think everyone appreciate that very much.
