Ottawa Tulip Festival – P2 & Ottawa Tour

Went back to the Ottawa Tulip Festival on Major’s Hill Park to try and add missing bits and pieces from the previous article.  As the Pavilion wasn’t really packed like it was on Saturday I managed to get some decent shots.  As I already upped a few videos I didn’t take any new ones of the Tulip.

Girl Scouts – Parliament & Violinist

As I was heading to the Tulip Festival on Major’s Hill Park  and took a short cut through Sparks street. I came across two street performers. I only recorded one of them (below).

Canada, Ottawa – Downtown Easter Friday

Wow, such an unCanadian like day as the weather was  oddly warm and summer like. I’m not complaining as I actually enjoyed such an unusually warm weather for late March and early April. It went from being snowy, warm, cloudy, warm, cold, cloudy, rain, cloudy, sunny, cloudy, chilly, warm, windy, warmer, and then into summer in an unusually short time. People didn’t even need a sweater in this weather and to top it off buses could easily turn into a sauna.

Winterlude 2010 – Rideau Canal

The final article about Winterlude 2010. This time I went to check out the Rideau Canal as I forgot to do so on my first visit. I of course missed out on the most important part of Winterlude – skating on the longest skating rink in the world, the Rideau Canal. Up for some Beaver tails or a simple skate?
