Fiddleheads,chocolate, tea and a story.

My second day in Ottawa had to be taken up with the market. Who can resist the promise of stalls selling local produce, flowers, artisan items and browsing a variety of independent stores?

How was your stay? Where too next?

Thank you, Montreal, for welcoming me and allowing me to call you home for a few days. I appreciated the challenge of Mount Royal, I learned about your culture and some of your history through discovering your art, through meeting beautiful people and tasting your food. For now I must say goodbye, but know that I will return to explore once more.

A marathon day

I had this day figured out in my head: brisk walk up Mount Royal using a different exit point, to walk all the way down Rue du Rachel to Olympic village. Can’t be that far can it? As the day was still a little cloudy and cool, I took some time to complete a post…

Finding my own way

My morning had started by finishing the book I was reading, “The Murmur of Bees”; the English translation by Simon Bruni of “El murmullo de las abejas” by Sofia Segovia. A soul stirring event that set my mood for the day. (Review on Goodreads).

Magical ‘mist’ery tour

It was a misty morning, with some promise of sun later on in the day. My main aim for the day was to just enjoy the Falls as a spectacular nature show. No hype, little tourism stuff, and with the exception of one extravaganza not much money spent. I love walking, so the aim was to walk as much as I could.
