Colourful, Creative and Cultural is how I would describe OTTAWA our Nation’s capital. I’ve lived in Canada for 8 years now and only got around to visiting Ottawa this weekend!! Worth the wait though. Old buildings, great architecture, lots of art, markets, and did I say old buildings. Everything I miss from home.
This piece of art was right in our hotel, a mural of grass, real living grass.
Below is a view of parliament hill taken as we made our way across the bridge to Gatineau, QC
The leaves are just beginning to turn.
One of my favourite buildings in the city. I love the colours the grey on the red brick, and the ornate windows.
This is a shot of the ceiling of the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Ottawa’s streets are filled with sculptures and these two were my favourite. Above is entitled “JOY” and below is the huge spider we found outside the Art Gallery.
A little imposing at first but friendly when you get to know her.
