One of my stops during Doors Open was at the Ottawa Rowing Club, nestled nicely along the Ottawa River. Gatineau can be seen on the other side, with the Alexandria Bridge spanning the river in the background. The club dates back to 1867, and was started by John A. Macdonald, yet another example of the way our first prime minister seemed to be following me around throughout the weekend.
As you can see, it was a very pleasant day on the water.
A number of people were out on the dock by the club, some in the water, others on the practice devices on the dock. The club has members and also has classes for those interested in learning to row, or upgrading their skills on the water. I have more from here over the next two days, but I thought I'd leave off today with this dog, who was here with his humans, but seemed to have more interest in his stick.
