Thus far, our Memorial Day Weekend travels have taken us to the capital of our northern neighbor. It is odd to think that from our home in upstate New York, we are closer to the capital of Canada than that of the United States. Therefore, Josiah and I packed up a few things and took a day trip to Ottawa to make the most of such an opportunity. Ottawa was impressive. It is a bustling city full of beautiful architecture, a fabulous farmer’s market, and busy streets. We had the extra advantage of going during a regular work day, and therefore avoiding weekend and holiday crowds.
We also strolled around Major’s Hill Park and admired the view and the tulips. Our final destination was a walk through ByWard Market and a gander at all the crafts and flowers of the farmer’s market. Even though we just made a day trip of it, Ottawa was a memorable city, one that we may make the drive back to soon.
