Christmas on the Canal

We went for a walk on Christmas Day morning, to help give us an appetite for dinner after our Pavés à la Canelle for breakfast (Cinnamon Cobbles, I'll try to figure out the recipe well enough to post soon. It's transcribed a long, long time ago from a French magazine, probably Paris-Match, so the measurements are all over the place, some imperial, some metric... ).
 We brought some old stale bread and saw plenty of birds who enjoyed it - apart from the heron who flew off into a tree. It was a surprise to see a wood duck and a pair of mandarins - maybe they had come from the park.

I missed the first and best skein of geese due to not yet having my camera out.

On the way to work...

Just for fun, because I accidentally hit the "posterize" button when I was editing one if the brewery silhouette photos:

And after I left the supermarket, I was rather surprised to see this:
