I arrived in Ottawa Thursday evening, after spending eleven hours 'on the road'...and left Monday morning... to do more of the same...but add on a FOUR HOUR wait in Vancouver! But it was all good because my daughter and I packed in so much fun during those three days that I needed that extra travel time home just to process it all!
Here are some of the highlights...no I'm not on the boat tour (maybe next time?)...I'm riding my rental bike down the bike lane that followed the beautiful Rideau Canal...to a small lake and park.
As you can see, there were no leaves turning colour...but it was a warm beautiful day. Ottawa hasn't had any cold weather YET...so there were no signs of Fall.
Here are some pictures of our day...Markets' highlights-
Loved this booth...those are carrots...yellow and white stacked so artfully!
Off to a Quilt Shop in Kanata....it's called 'The Running Stitch'...it was a quick trip but I managed to spend a bit...in the book department!
Here are a couple of pictures of the quilts in the window...
The other Quilt Shop that we visited wasn't really a 'quilt shop', more like a Fabric Store...It's called 'Fabrications' and I really didn't have high hopes for this shop. In fact, I told my daughter that we should skip this one but she insisted. I am SO glad that I raised a persistent daughter...haha... because I LOVED this shop!
Back at Hayley's apartment, as we vegged on her couch, I commented that the ONLY thing that we didn't do on this visit, was eat a 'Beavertail'...Me and my big mouth!! It was up off the couch and back to the city center (yes, we walked) because we HAD to complete our visit with a Beavertail... even it meant ruining our dinner!
For those of you who have never eaten a Beavertail here's what they look like...they are like a huge flat doughnut with different toppings and they are served warm and gooey! Mine was the traditional Maple and Chocolate...OMG GOOD... while Hayley had the Nuttela topping...which is just plain WRONG...but she said it was delicious! Dinner was light...very light!
To say that we had a FANTASTIC visit was an understatement...but the dogs' were barking (code for my feet were killing me!). I knew it was their way of saying that it was time to go home!
Sewing? Nope...nada...nothing! Not one stitch...didn't even get it out of the suitcase! :o))
BUT... I hoped you enjoyed my visit to Ottawa...:o)
Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Stitching!
