Not Quite Spring

The weather is warmer these days...

But it's not quite spring...

This is what the end of the Rideau Canal (next to the Ottawa River) looks like with the water drained out. I notice that two boats have been moored in the empty canal all winter.

The shining sun invites me to go out walking, but a cold wind penetrates the skin!

Nevertheless, a few days ago, Terry and I headed out for a walk downtown.

We wandered through the Byward market and over to Parliament Hill.

(The "falling ice" sign will probably be taken away soon ... until next year!)

The ice on the Ottawa River was beginning to thaw.

The skating rink that had been in front of the Parliament Buildings was being cleared away.

We don't walk downtown very often...

Next time we come, tulips may be in bloom!

(They're starting to emerge!)
