A couple of weekends ago, hubby and I drove to Canada's capital city, Ottawa. We've been coming here almost every year for the last 15 years specially during the Tulip Festival in spring and in January for the Winter Festival but rarely during the summer time. One thing is sure, Ottawa is alive, vibrant and hot in summer!
At the Westin Ottawa, we were luckily upgraded to the 19th floor overlooking the Parliament Hill, the historical Chateau Laurier, the Rideau Canal and part of the Ottawa River. Don"t get me wrong, I love waking up in our bedroom at home overlooking our neighbors' vast farmland but waking up to these great architectural structures once in awhile is a feast to the eyes.
For us two country mice, we can't think of a better way to end our weekend rendezvous in the Capital than the spectacular fireworks along the Ottawa river!
