Today happens to be my one thousandth published post, so it's fitting that the milestone is reached with a post about a place I enjoy so much.
Moving over to the Quebec side of the Ottawa River brings us to the Museum of History, formerly the Museum of Civilization, here in Gatineau, on the shores of the river. Tulip beds could be found on the property while the festival was going on.
The Museum, designed by architect Douglas Cardinal, is a favourite place of mine in the National Capital Region. The exterior features a Japanese zen garden, the only spot I know of here with dogwood trees, carefully tended to by ground crews, who were working there while I was around. I have more from here tomorrow.
