Happy Canada Day everyone!
Here in the National Capital we are enjoying our yearly “day of fame” under a nice blue sky and very summery temperatures of 32°C.
Feng and I headed downtown this morning to enjoy some of the festivities. It seemed less busy than last year, when the Royal couple was in Ottawa, but Parliament Hill was still tightly packed with a river of white- and red-clad Canadians and tourists.
We spotted the Mounties, the Governor General and the Snowbirds before making our way to Major’s Hill Park, where some Canada-themed activities were underway.
After a few hours of walking around, we decided to take the opportunity to visit the National Gallery of Canada since most museums are free on Canada Day. We had been there a long time ago and I didn’t remember how nice the building was inside, especially the windows of the Great Hall that capture Parliament Hill. The museum has a nice art collection, we will definitely be back to explore it when it’s less busy and when we have more energy!
