Recalling our trip to Ottawa – Day 1

So, I thought I would spend some posts telling you all about our trip to Ottawa – with pictures, of course!

Day 1:  June 27.  Victoria to Ottawa.

An early flight.  I won’t go into detail, but suffice it to say while we had a direct flight from Victoria to Toronto booked, we missed the cut-off for checking bags, so had to be re-routed through Vancouver.  Then on to Toronto, and finally…Ottawa!

Other than the re-routing, the flights were routine (as routine as it can be for someone who hates flying).  I did get brave enough to lean over Kevin to get some pictures of the mountains as we passed over them.

Kevin, of course, slept most of the way.

Then – Ottawa.  Just in time for dinner with some friends – optometry colleagues of Kevin’s who live in Alberta.  We opted for an Italian restaurant in the Market who, much to my happiness, had gluten-free options for all its pasta dishes!

 

Yum….bread I couldn’t eat…

Followed by 2 kinds of mussels

And then…pasta!!

And that was our day.  Leaving the house at 5:00 am, you would expect more, but it’s a LONG way from Victoria to Ottawa, and we lost 3 hours going across the country. At least it wasn’t raining when we got there!

Stay tuned for Day 2!!
