Had to opportunity to enjoy an amazing photo walk today along the Ottawa River! Along our route, I discovered this amazing piece of “art?” Don’t know its origins, anyone out there able to fill me in? I know it probably has to do with the water filtration plant on Lemieux Island island, but I’m guessing there is more to the story than that…. Anyone? And because I can, two more random photos from today’s walk bellow! Hope everyone has an amazing Canada day tomorrow! à

Another Ottawa landmark with a great history behind it for you this morning. I won’t go into the details about its history (Wikipedia Article), because I don’t want to be late for work again this morning… I do have a history of getting caught up reading interesting articles about Ottawa landmarks and their history. Also for those of you with dogs, another interesting discovery for you this morning. Did you know that Lemieux Island is home to a huge dog park? If your looking for something different, perhaps something for you guys to check out.   [google_map address=’143′ coordinates=’45.413907,-75.726974′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]

Was up early again this morning in the hopes of catching an amazing sunrise in the middle of the Ottawa River. Sadly it wasn’t meant to be. Thankfully I managed to sneak a peak of the incredibly ugly Portage Complexe in Gatineau. Somehow at 6:35 in the morning, all lit up in the night sky, it don’t look to bad! Hopefully, not too many people were already working! I would dread the day if I ever had to start work that early.    [google_map address=’142′ coordinates=’45.414422,-75.727398′ zoom=’15’ height=’300px’]
