The Rideau Canal

In June 2007, UNESCO designated the Rideau Canal, a landmark in Ottawa, a World Heritage Site, citing it as “the best preserved canal in North America from the great canal-building era of the early 19th century to remain operational along its original line with most of its original structures intact.

So we did what Canadians do best in the summer: we celebrated.

  1. @itelli – Thank you!

    @bluefish – Same as I rarely go to Montreal 😉

    @Annie – Canada is really into heritage, yet, the country looks so young for a European like me!

    @beaverboosh – I haven’t seen any Kiwi, but I will look for one next time. I want my own weird experience by Rideau!

    @Ulquiorra – No, not really. Just water pouring out of the locks.

    @RennyBA – Thanks for the award! I love these locks, they are right downtown and they are a great place to hang out at. I’ll read your post about your locks and canal!

    @DianeCA – Fascinating, isn’t it!

    @kyh – I did watch and I’m still watching today. I’m going to Bejing next week, I’m so excited!

    @Seraphine – Bagpipe is obviously a big part of Chinese culture! Confucius said “take a bag, take a pipe, and make a bagpipe”. His advice is still followed today 😆

    @Scarlet – This is my second firework this summer and I must say I did enjoy.
