A Weekend in Ottawa
This weekend we went up to visit my husband's brother, his wife and family in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Oh the fun that we had. Whenever we are all together within 24 hours I am laughing so hard I am crying. It's over something silly and childish but my oh my it's fun! My brother in law is funny. I love when it gets too crazy and my sister in law reprimands him (while laughing).
We did the same market (byward) to walk around and take in the sights sounds and the delicious aromas of what is for sale. I enjoyed a lovely breakfast outside in a courtyard (not photoed, I was too busy eating).
The patriotic cookies are still there in massive quantities-yum! The streets were speckled with outdoor musicians hoping for some spare change and the sidewalk chalk artist was sketching just like the last time we were there.
Would you believe that crossing the border each way was easy peasy? We've been doing it for decades. It never fails that the Canadian officer is cheerful and the American officer is a bit dour (he needs one of those cookies). Coming home there was NO line at all at the border!! Unheard of!!
We parked in a rather dirty parking garage that was so filthy I didn't touch the bannister-yet look at this beautiful view in the above photo-beauty is there when you look especially through the camera lens.
When we were finished toodling about the downtown area, we drove the "parkway" and stopped at an overlook area for some more scenery and photo taking. This is Hull, Quebec part of Gatineau, Quebec. We have never been there but frequently look at it from Ottawa (a future trip perhaps?)
As quickly as we arrived on Friday, I was back home again on Sunday. I must say, I love coming home!!
How was your weekend?
