Chinguacousy is the name of a local park where I often have a wonderful time feeding (bribing?) geese, ducks and gulls when I have my camera with me. The light on this particular day was something of a surprise since most of the day had been cloudy. However, it was getting fairly late in the afternoon and the sun broke through just as I was about to leave the park. I happened to look behind me and the trees and pond took on a whole new look with the change in the light.
I looked up the name Chinguacousy because although I probably learned the origin of the name when I was in school it was too long ago to remember. :-) According to Wikipedia:
Chinguacousy Township was opened in 1819 and named, probably in honour of a loyal Chippewa chief who fought at the capture of Michilimackinac. His name was Shinguacose, “the small pine.” The name of the township may also be from an Indian word meaning “the place where young pines grow.”
