Day of parties and fireworks

Posted on Sun, 1 Jul 2007 by KiM

I would like to wish all our Canadian readers a very happy Canada Day. Because I live in Ottawa, Canada’s capital (and no, Toronto is NOT the capital) I thought I’d share some photos with you of this lovely city (and one of the museum across the river). Sadly I have never really taken any good photos of the beautiful scenery and architecture here so I had to enlist the help of Flickr.

In my Flickr search I found the following images and had to include them because they are crucial for survival in this city.

Many of you probably don’t know that we have 2 extra food groups here: Tim Hortons coffee and poutine. Without these life as we know it would cease to exist. Hope you enjoyed this little taste of Ottawa. Come on out and visit sometime…just maybe not in the winter. 😉

Happy Canada Day to you as well Kim. I’m originally from Ottawa but have been living in Vancouver for about 14 years. My family is all still there and I’ll be visiting in September.

Happy Canada Day. I’ll have a plate of those poutine thingies. Chips with cheese and gravy.
