  2. Terrific shots, Anita. I like the variety of your images and the enthusiasm in which you present them. It sounds like you had a grand time of it! We missed Ottawa the last time we went to Canada…Quebec City was our destination. We’ll make a point of visiting this area the next time we head north.

    • Quebec City is a fabulous destination Michael – I love going there. You will have to check out Ottawa next time – it is a beautiful city and has so much to offer! My photos barely skimmed the surface.

  3. Interesting pictures! I like the guards; the reds are magnificent! I like the Inuit statues too. They’re supposed to make up the seven pillars of wisdom. Or so I hear…

    • Thanks Spartacus. I agree that the reds just leap off the page. I love watching the changing of the guard. I had not heard of the seven pillars of wisdom. Will have to look that one up! Thanks for the tip.

  5. Anita, I’ve looked at your posts and photographs from your posts about Ottawa-Outaouais in the summer, and there’s an immediate result. I feel the call of the region, asking me to go back once again … 😉
