Lift Bridge - the road is UP
This bridge goes over the canal between two cities: Burlington and Hamilton. Large ships pass regularly through the canal from Lake Ontario into Hamilton Harbour, a busy port.
Boat about to go under bridge
I like this canal because vacationing waterfowl from the Arctic spend time here in winter. Although ships pass through, ducks are present when the canal is otherwise quiet.
Road is coming down
You cannot see the traffic, but there are quite a few cars waiting or the road to come back down. It was early morning and a few motorists needed to get to work.
Driving across the bridge
This is what the elevated road looks like when it's back at traffic level.
Bridge seen from east side of pier
After crossing the bridge, we parked and walked out onto the pier that stretches out into Lake Ontario. And look who was swimming in the canal!
