Faith And Begorrah In Ottawa

More shots from the St. Patrick's Day parade this past weekend, starting with the saint himself.


Crossing down into the Glebe, I took note of this dog marching with the parade. Other dogs were watching.


And here at the end of the route, at Lansdowne, I wanted a shot with Abbotsford House in the background. I'd caught up to the greyhounds from yesterday as they arrived.

  3. I notice through the years lots of dogs at parades. Don't know if the noise bothers them but I hope not.

  20. @Cloudia: thanks!

    @Linda: there are a great many Irish descended people here in Ottawa and beyond, and so it shows itself.

    @RedPat: I looked for any of those in the crowd... the wrinkly one will have to do!

    @VP: when Irish eyes are smiling, they're up to something.

    @Tex: I did too. I hadn't photographed ambulances or fire trucks before, so I figured it didn't hurt to do both, giving a look at what ours look like.

    @Denise: they were all adorable. The two white ones, I figured, might be mother and pup.

    @Geoff: this one was a good one.

  24. So, you had St. Patrick himself! And some very cute dogs, too.

  25. That first building/house is painfully symmetric! I think a "house" theme for one of the theme days would be great.

  28. Thanks for taking me along to this parade, William. We attended the St Patrick's Day parade in Mystic, CT. It was a blustry and cold day with very large crowds despite the weather.
