Hello dear friends of TE, I have a preference for canals and certainly it canal where I as child could play with friends, sixty five years ago!
In the afternoon this was a wonderful image with the long shadows in water of the trees.
Not real a winter picture, but the winter in Flemish Belgium is very soft with 10 Degree Celsius

Thank you very much to your visit.

While to get started with 't Molentje, a neighbourhood in Moerkerke, Canadians tried about the Leopold and Schipdonkcanal. The channels were crossed with only one Bailey bridge (due to the distant supply line from Normandy was the only one they had) and a bridgehead was established, but fierce German counterattacks drove the Canadians back with heavy losses. Dan was chosen to venture a crossing at Nut House, a place just east of the spot where the two channels parted. This was a triangular strip with even dry land along the Leopold Canal with the base at Maldegem - Aardenburg and the top near the village of Nut Head, located five kilometres to the east. It was only a few hundred yards wide, and the northern boundary coincided with the Belgian-Dutch border. The attack began on October 6 with the support of artillery and Canadian Wasp (carriers) that were equipped with flamethrowers. The Wasps launched a wall of fire across the Leopold Canal, which the troops were able to climb up the steep banks and their attack boats for stabbing the canal. Two small beachheads were established, but the Germans carried out against attacks. The Canadians were, however, stand by 9 October and the gap between the two bridgeheads was closed, and on October 12, a position was reached on the other side of the Aardenburgweg.
