... but is starting to close in downstream.
I like walking by the water this time of year. There were a few snowflakes in the air. The birds were silent, and the river was quiet.
I stopped to look at some of the old brick buildings by the basin. A few of the buildings used to be old warehouses. They were converted to homes years ago.
I came across an old print that showed a number of buildings along the river by the basin back over 100 years ago when the steamships came up the Otter. The brick buildings were in the print, but a number of other warehouses were there. They are long-gone, but a few of their foundations still exist.
It amazes me how much things have changed over time...
