Road Trip: Ottawa and Back

Pin It


The purpose of our trip was to attend my niece's wedding, which we did and it was lovely. Our trip was winding down and I was ready to head home. On the way back, I really wanted to see the nation's capital Ottawa, Ontario.

I absolutely loved it! It's such a beautiful place filled with history. The best way to describe it is through pictures.


The Peace Tower in Parliament Hill. I wanted to go inside but everything was closed.

The Rideau Canal

Laura Secord. 19th Century Chicks rule!

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the National War Memorial.

What a nice way to end the trip! Still, we had two more solid days of driving. I was so happy to see my house again and sleep in my own bed.
