Keeping Cool on Labour Day

Most years, the Labour Day long weekend brings cooler temperatures and this familiar shit-Fall-is-coming reminder.

Not this year. It’s been very hot in Ottawa since we came back, with regular heat and thunderstorms warnings. Labour Day was no exception—35°C, hot, steamy and sweaty.

I’m actually enjoying this, even though I drank two bottles of water in one afternoon.

We ended up at the splash pad for some water fun. The Plant recreation center and Plouffe Park beside it are one of my favourite spots in Ottawa. It’s right at the corner of Little Italy (Preston Street) and Chinatown (Somerset), there is a Bridgehead coffee shop nearby… and bonus for kids, the fire station is in front of the park, so they get to see the trucks on their way to some kind of not-so-fun emergency situation!
