Ottawa, ON

We had a busy day today!
We ran into the changing of the guard
just south of the Parliament Buildings.

We took a 90 minute cruise on the Ottawa River on the Paula D.
Me and Gord
The boat went really close to Rideau Falls
Really really close!

Steve's house
(aka Prime Minister Stephen Harper's residence)

Me and Gord at the Rideau Locks

After the cruise, we had a late lunch at Fat Tuesdays ... very yummy! Then we went on a tour (inside and out) of the Parliament Buildings.

We did a pub crawl this evening with a local company called the Naughty Ottawa Pub Crawl around ByWard Market. Though the guide told some interesting stories about the area, it wasn't a great tour (we did some great pub walks in London two years ago). We ended the evening having very tasty wings at Pier 21.
