You get another of those free Pearson guided tours!!!!

After a great and quiet sleep and whilst Esther and Steve were working I walked back to the Parliament Buildings for the changing of the guard followed by an amphibious bus tour which was followed by a 90 minute open double deck bus tour so sit back and enjoy!!!!

A few friends told me when in Ottawa to go to the market and have a Beaver tail didn’t quite know what they meant but as you know I always do what I am told so I got off the bus at the market and found

I think the Tail rivals Timmie’s donuts!!!!!

I really enjoyed the tours seeing all the buildings and learning lots about my country!!!

Back at the apartment late afternoon Esther, Steve and I set off for the weekend at the cottage, yes another lake cottage weekend!!!

This is Farren Lake about70 minutes from Ottawa and really I am only about 30 minutes from where I was last week at Otter Lake!!!
