Today was one of those days where I was up early (for the record, I consider 7:30 am on a Saturday early) and I made a plan. I knew what I wanted to accomplish for the day… actually, for the weekend.
My plan made it to noon before being scraped.
I received a text from my sister who was in the mood to play tourist in Ottawa. If it involves photo opportunities, I’m in!
We went to Tavern on the water for a late lunch. I’ve been wanting to try it out since last year so was stoked to finally be there. If you haven’t heard of the Taverns in Ottawa, there are two: Tavern on the hill in Major’s Hill park and Tavern on the water next to Rideau falls on Sussex drive.
I’ll add a photo at a later date as my camera battery died and I don’t have a replacement with me! (Gasp!)
I took a dozen or so photos of the Ottawa river and Rideau falls. Then we walked across the falls, exploring the surrounding areas.
Across the street lies the old city hall… a fascinating architecture gem and again, a place I’ve been wanting for years to visit, especially the white bridges in the back.
Today was the day!
I managed to download a couple of photos before my camera died. Here is one of my favs:
It was a hot hot day so we cooled off with a swim in the pool before supper. On my way home, I was greeted by some very nasty looking clouds:
The rain started shortly before I arrived home, followed by lightening and thunder. What a show!
Tonight’s photo of the day is the sky after the storm.
And tonight’s painting is inspired by that sky:
