Even though I know parts of Ottawa pretty well, it’s fun to do touristy things when I have free time. Things like…
Post-dinner walks along the canal:
Bike tour to see the tulips! [The guide reminded me a lot of Fred Armisen...woohoo!]
The man with two hats:
Tulips in an array of colours:
Slightly odd statue:
Dow’s Lake is a lovely place! I see myself spending many summer afternoons by its side.
After a nice morning with family in Westboro Beach, my roommate and I joined a Jane’s Walk called “Parliament’s Progress: a look towards the precinct of 2032″. The guide was super knowledgeable, so even though I wasn’t seeing anything new, it was enjoyable.
Walk ‘n learn, kids.

I was hoping to do a couple more Jane’s walks, including a “foodie” tour of Hintonburg & a bike tour called “Ottawa’s Stolen Urban Waterfront” (intriguing title, no?) but I was pooped after a long week of work (well not really that long…but I’m comparing this to my life as an unemployed person with boatloads of free time). It was a very nice weekend nonetheless.
