Our holiday in Ottawa

A week ago Wednesday we packed up the car and headed up to Ottawa.  Its a good 5 hour drive from Oakville, but the weather was perfect and we made excellent time.  It may have helped a bit I drove the last leg of the trip.  I do not have a light foot!
These are only some of the photos we snapped while away.  I selected what I thought what might be the most interesting for those of you who have never been to our Nation’s capital.  When we go, I must admit we do a few things over and over again, however we can always find something new to see.
We visit the cats of Parliament Hill every time and I’m sorry to say only saw three this year. I’m going to let you read about it here as I could mess up the story about them.
We visit the Byward Market and always go to one of our favourite Ottawa area restaurants for at least one meal. We never miss an evening on Parliament Hill. For the first time we paid our respects at the National War Memorial which is located right in the heart of Ottawa.  We also spent hours at the Museum of Civilization.  We saw so much and took so many photos of everything in the building.  Its all dedicated to Canada and so beautifully done. 
Here you are.  Our trip in a nutshell.  I didn’t think you wanted the long version…………….over 200 photos.  Enjoy.

We are starting a very busy week-end.  Today we are off to the small town of Dunnville to a quilt show that  Dunnville's Own Tiny Stitchers are putting on.  This group of ladies very kindly donated quilts to Slave Lake Alberta after the devastating wildfire.  We are meeting up with our friends Jessie and Max, doing the show, having lunch and a good gab.  We haven't seen them for awhile, and we are really looking forward to it.  We may even run into Elaine and Lorne, friends here from Oakville who are going over too.
