Woke up early so thought I’d take a brisk walkies around the city. Needed some exercise since I’d been sat on my duff all week, Facebooking, Tweeting and media pitching for the Cdn Comedy Awards – the “Beavers” are given out tonight.
I love the statures and sculptures around the city…this HUGE spider (above) is in front of the National Gallery. Directly opposite ipsy-wipsy was a beautiful heritage building and a stunning Catholic church (below)
There’s so much green space, I was very impressed. And how wonderful to be alone…only sharing the scene with a couple of very horny squirrels!
The British Lt. Colonel By was one of the greatest early engineers in Canada. He built the 200 km Rideau Canal.
More beautiful vistas of the Parliament Buildings…
One more day then it’s back to reality on Toronto – big art/food event on Thursday at Urban Gallery with Whisky & Spice, then launching/promoting Shelley Marshall’s “Hold Mommy’s Cigarette” 28-day run in Toronto. I guess this morning’s “touristy” walk was my only vacation this year!
