The weather is still lovely in Ottawa and most of us try to spend as much time outside as we can—it’s about time we get a tan!
Last weekend, Feng and I took a long walk on Parliament Hill and along the Ottawa River. The Parliament grounds were crowded—the nice weather and the Tulips Festival brought a lot of tourists, mostly from China, India, the U.S. and other Canadian cities.
Funny enough, when we reached the gates of the Parliament, Feng and I realized that we had never taken a “traditional” shot of us in front of the Centre Block. Pretty ironic considering how many times we’ve been there! So we asked one of the tourists to take us, a good ten years after settling in Ottawa.
From the Parliament, we took the stairs down to the Ottawa River and walked towards Victoria Island, close to Portage Bridge. The view on Gatineau and on all the interprovincial bridges was lovely and the path was mercifully quiet—not too many tourists realize there is a path all along the river.
