A Foggy Day In Port Credit

On my way home from grocery shopping yesterday I had to stop and take a few shots before going home..I couldn't help myself..You are looking at the Port Credit Lighthouse located in Port Credit, Ontario.........(as much as I dislike the old bikes they have around town..this one adds a little something special to this composition) :) It's a good thing I keep my trusty little lumix in my purse!

 

"The name "Port Credit" came from its roots as a trading post where goods were traded or bought on credit. The earliest reference is on a map drawn in 1757 by La Broquerie at Fort Frontenac, a fort built by the French at the mouth of the Cataraqui River, the site of the city of Kingston. Its harbour, at the mouth of the Credit River, was once a working fishing port and a regional trading centre for grain and other agricultural products. A lighthouse was in use from 1882 to 1918 and remained standing until destroyed by fire in 1936."
