The Black River rises in the Cape Mabou Highlands and flows through fields and wetlands, emptying eventually into Loch Ban. It is home to lots of wild fowl and each time I have passed by I have seen (and sometimes startled) ducks at several points along the way. There is one here, swimming near a bush a bit left of centre on the uppermost part of the water in the centre of the photo. Not far from this spot, there is a bridge where the Black River crosses under the Railway Trail; it is a delightful place to rest and enjoy the marshlands and the Cape Mabou Highlands to the northwest. On one of my trips here, a couple in a canoe waved as they paddled by; I never heard them coming and was some surprised when I looked in their direction and saw them! I have also seen kids navigating on inner tubes in this area. It’s just a lovely spot.
