I am taking leave of the War Museum today. I start with this view of the Ottawa River, taken outside on the terrace.
The Ottawa River narrows here between Ottawa and Gatineau, occupied by several islands that the river works its way around. Here on the terrace we have a view across to one of the islands. There are early plans underway to renew this entire area around the Chaudiere Falls. I'm cautiously optimistic- perhaps even the old industrial buildings can see some new use?
Visitors can ascend a ramp up onto the rooftop of the museum, where they find much of the roof planted with long grasses. This can include a nicely framed view of Parliament Hill's Peace Tower.
