Ottawa, day 2 and the drive home

I never quite got around to writing about the second day in Ottawa...and a grand day it was.  We went to the Museum of Civilization, designed by Frank Gerhy, spectacular, but there are spots where he forgot that sometimes people have strollers or wheelchairs......


The roof of the great hall, looking to me rather like the mouth of a gigantic whale

A Bill Reid sculpture of a gigantic whale...

Some West Coast work

Another Bill Reid

West coast dug out canoes.  Amazing-

A wee spider I picked up for the ride, he got put outside after a bit.

The view of Ottawa from Quèbec!

Then we picked up Eldest and her buddy and took the MUCH less eventful and considerably glitterier drive back.

Lovely weekend away.
