Ashley's Story

An evening out at Coote's Paradise and Hamilton Harbour. I once lived in Hamilton but had to eventually move back to Toronto. But I can still visit because my son now attends McMaster University. When we visit, we have the pleasure of experiencing a new, improved waterway and ecosystem, thanks to the tireless efforts of so many people who made it possible. Thanks to you all for placing value on this natural wonder. Here are a few photos from that experience:
