Petawawa River overflows its banks at the catwalk

High Water   The Petawawa River overflows its banks at the catwalk in Petawawa Village. All that is happening here -- if my memory from 45+ years ago is reliable -- is that the Petawawa River is trying to reclaim an old river bed. As I remember, Lovers Rapids (and perhaps Catwalk Rapids at the corner) used to be separated from the Petawawa Village shore by an island. I wish I had an old, pre Centennial Park, map to verify that.
