    ^LOL! Yes, they shit everywhere. And can be nasty especially when their young are around. They often hiss when they feel intimidated or fearful.


    A few pics from my bike ride yesterday. Was very weird weather.. lots of rain clouds. We hid in a tunnel while it rained for ten mins. Then we only got a few drops, thankfully.







    Just as we biked into this tunnel it started to rain, so we waited it out.



    Huge down pour which the grass really needed.

    That is parliament hill in the distance. The senate and where Justin Trudeau works.



    I'm taking this from the Quebec side looking onto the Ontario side. It felt a bit eerie as it was so quiet which is unusual at this time of year considering Canada Day is is a few days off. All festivities are cancelled and not many tourists around due to Covid

    Thank you, lovely.
    Ottawa, Ontario is definitely a biker's paradise. I went with my best friend who I visit quite often. I know the area well as I lived there for 11 years.

    Is that Château Laurier on the left of the pic? I stayed there 2 or 3 times when I visited Ottawa.

    I liked Ottawa. For a capital city it is a comfortable size. Nice in summer. My abiding memory is of a winter visit, leaving the hotel and the doorman advised us no to step outside. We did, but I was as cold as I have ever been walking to the restaurant and back.

    ^Ottawa is a lovely city, I went to both universities there. It has a lot of greenery and waterways like the Rideau Canal and Ottawa River to bike on. Winters are pretty harsh, but then you can skate on the Rideau Canal in the winter and ski in the nearby Gatineau park. I may be moving back there soon enough. It is a nice size around 1 million people, and not overly big like Toronto or Vancouver.

    A few snaps taken recently on some bike rides.

    Best part of the trail is seeing this row of wildflowers every summer.



    Big ship docked at our harbour.

    I see, do you miss TO? It is a pretty cool city imo, but not sure I want to live there with the cost of living and crazy traffic.

    It's a clean city and I miss some things like free healthcare and competent doctors. Otherwise, not so much.

    Traffic is getting worse thanks to the ever incompetent TTC. My prediction when I bought was that the price of real estate will only go up simply because public transport is one of the worst. Last time I took a Go bus from Union to Hamilton during rush hour it took 1 just to move 2km from Union Station.

    ^I visited last summer and spent almost every summer there as a teenager as my cousins live there. It is a nice change from small town and even Ottawa. I prefer Ottawa though, it is more green, less people... although Ottawa's transport system kind of sucks too. They just put in light rail and it broke down a lot this past winter. lol
