Cold at Chaudière Falls

If dressed properly yesterday afternoon was absolutely gorgeous. Fortunately I was dressed properly so I had a wonderful time. The Chaudière Falls always seem to be in full spate no matter the season so it is always worth a visit.

The falls are the site of the E. B. Eddy pulp mill which churned out millions of matches amongst other things. I can remember back in the seventies the smell from the digesters wafting across the river. It was bought out by Domtar which produced many rolls of paper towels before throwing in the towel (ha! I could not resist). The site sat dormant until bought by a developer for condos and parks. Many of the old buildings have been repurposed and some have been razed. It is turning into a beautiful development so I guess not all developers are evil.

Not all the old building have yet received their Zibi renovation but are still in use by the Zibi corporation. In time they will be given the treatment. My understanding is that the rear of the building on the right was originally the stables back in the E.B. Eddy days and then was later converted to storage.

Looking back to Booth Street with Parliament Hill in the background. The security guy in the car wanted to know why I was taking do you explain the vision of a photographer?

security guys might be frightening even if they do not have the right to stop you
