Who are we

We are a family of 3 who took a break from our routine. Usually we live in Scotland but February to the end of July 2011 we were on the road in North America for 6 months. We are Mark (also known as Dad), Rachel (also known as Mum... and a whole bunch of other names... my usual at-home blog is here) and little h (10/11 years of age during the trip).

Ottawa stop

So on Monday we headed to the country's capital and just caught the end of the last day of the Winterlude festival there (lots of ice sculptures...). Then on Tuesday we wandered the sights on a very cold but beautifully bright day (photo above is of Suffragette statues near Parliament). We spent most of the afternoon in the National Gallery of Canada which was such an impressive building that it will get its own slideshow (next post) but for now here are some Ottawa city shots:

Great pictures - looks like a nice city. Is that one picture of people walking down a river?

The river isn't completely frozen but the smaller canal is and they walk and skate on it every winter. M and h did walk on it but didn't skate this time for various reasons to do with time and space and queues for skates and temperatures!
