I wanted a clear day for a more recent update from Major's Hill Park and Nepean Point, but on Easter Sunday, when I was downtown, something caught my eye. There was a very low lying fog on the Ottawa River, something that seemed to make the Gatineau shore seem to be floating above a cloud deck.
Colonel By seemed rather gloomy under the conditions. Most of the snow had been gone by this point, though there were the odd piles in shady spots, particularly on the slopes of Parliament Hill.
Coming up to Champlain's statue at the top of Nepean Point, the views around Ottawa and Gatineau were quite different from a sunny day. The effect looking east, towards the Macdonald Cartier Bridge, had the same effect of looking as if the bridge was floating in the clouds.
All in all, a very different mood from yesterday's post, but the fog made it irresistible.
