Quick Trip to Ottawa

Today we headed in to Ottawa to pick up Gordon's passport. When he took the paperwork in a couple of weeks ago it cost him $11.00 to park. Since I went with him today we were able to park at the meters and it cost $1.00 and I was able to walk around the Byward Market a bit.

Shirley's Bay Birding Area - many noisy squirrels there

We didn't stay in the city long. We had one errand to run at the Carlingwood Mall, then stopped at Mud Lake but only the same two Mallard Ducks were there so on to Shirley's Bay and then headed for home arriving shortly after 1 p.m.


  1. Ottawa seems to be a very attractive city. Nice pictures.

  2. Ottawa seems sunny and bright today, perhaps the snow is on its way out!

    Have you made any progress on your issues getting entrance into the US?

    We miss you down here!
