River walk

We have noticed since moving to Brugg, a small town surrounded by rivers and wetlands, how misty most mornings are. I guess this may not always be the case in spring and summer (we wouldn’t know yet) but there is a distinctive atmosphere to the place on a cold autumn morning.
Wikipedia informed me that the river Aare is a tributary of the High Rhine and the longest river that both rises and ends entirely within Switzerland, after a 295 km journey and a 1,565 m descent! What Wiki does not say is that the river runs past our house:
The river viewed from our living room
... and that it is heavily present  in most of the walks we do with Alf. We are slowly discovering its bridges

its colours
Its obstacles
Its users
And its oddities (can you spot it?)
All we need to find now is a wider and shallower place where the river flow slows down for our daily summer swim with Alf…the search is on!
