These shots date back to the 19th of March. I was passing through Major's Hill Park, where Colonel By's statue stands. In May, the flower beds around and behind him, as well as elsewhere in the park and beyond, will be showing off tulips for the Tulip Festival.
The views out onto the Ottawa River and Parliament Hill still show the snow and ice that was around here at the time.
This view across the park looks towards the U.S. Embassy.
While this view looks towards Notre Dame Basilica.
I headed up behind the National Gallery and up to the top of Nepean Point, where the statue of Champlain looks west over the river. The views from here over both Ottawa and Gatineau are a delight. Tomorrow I'll show you what it looked like here more recently.
