Beauty and Bonding in Ottawa

Summer in Canada is beautiful, hanging baskets decorated many buildings

It’s bitter sweet going through my Canada holiday pics.  I miss Domi even more and want to go back.  One of many special times was a day in Ottawa, (they live in Arnprior just outside Ottawa).  We explored the old town section of the city and enjoyed bagels for breakfast.

Domi took me to the National Gallery where we spent hours looking at art. She spoiled me with an additional ticket for us to enter the Gauguin portraits exhibition

The Notre Dame cathedral opposite the National Gallery is beautiful

Ottawa, graceful, clean and picturesque.  You never go far without seeing water
Loved the old buildings in Ottawa
Ottawa is so cycle friendly
on a separate occasion we went to watch the light show at parliament buildings. An audio visual extravaganza, telling the history of Canada

Domi was bleak that we didn’t get to visit the war museum together but I like having something to look forward to next time.
