Major's Hill Park was one of the busiest spots on Canada Day. This view of the park is from inside the National Gallery.
This looks down the ramp at the National Gallery, just before one heads into the collections. I will be taking pics in here soon- the Gallery finally dropped the no photos policy recently. I had a chat with a staff member while we were looking at a Bernini.
Turning around, this is the view from the base of the glass tower in the Gallery. Parliament Hill looks good from here.
From here we set out across the Alexandria Bridge to the Gatineau side of the Ottawa River. Canada Day is the only day this portion of the bridge opens up to pedestrians. I like the lines of the steel.
I'm finishing up with a view of the Museum of Civilization, aka the Museum of History, decorated for the day. This terrace is on the curatorial wing, featuring the provincial and territorial flags. The two in the picture are for the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
