This is a view of fall colours along Sussex Drive, taken from near the French embassy in New Edinburgh. You might notice the presence of the French flag hanging from a streetlight here- the French PM was making an official visit some days after I was here. On such occasions, Canadian and national flags are hung up in pairs along Confederation Boulevard, the official designation of a number of streets, including Sussex, that link major sites in the capital.
Here are views of the embassy itself, with fall colours on full display.
Next to the embassy, and where New Edinburgh ends, is the parkland around Rideau Falls, where the Rideau River spills into the Ottawa River in two branches. This is the east branch.
Across the Ottawa River is Gatineau, Quebec, dressed in fall colours. I have more from here for the next couple of days. To my American readers- get out and vote. On behalf of much of the rest of the world, we're all counting on you to do the right thing in regards to the Infernal Combover. And I'll use some British slang: tell that self absorbed prat, wanker, and bloody git to sod off.
