Over a bridge and out to sea

Along the southern end of St Kilda beach, a trickle of water headed into Port Phillip Bay from Elwood Canal. This was once Elwood Creek during the days when much of the area was swamp and birds swarmed over the muddy creek bed in search of worms.

I was on the Federation 2001 Canal Trail but today, amongst low shrubs, two bridges arched over the canal: one for pedestrians; the other for bikers.
