I left off yesterday a block west of here. At Queen Street and Elgin Street, there was quite a crowd at the intersection. The National Arts Centre, across the crowd, was unveiled with the new additions on Canada Day. I was inside for the evening concert, so I'll show you interior views down the line.
Crossing through the crowd took about ten minutes to get to the other side, and I crossed the Mackenzie King Bridge over the Rideau Canal, where numerous boats were docked.
Later in the day, I was in the Rideau Centre, where this store caught my eye, with its canoe of raccoons. I hadn't seen it before- it opened in June.
The Rideau Centre has a pedestrian overpass leading over to the Bay store and the Byward Market. Views west and east took in some of the Canada Day crowd. An LRT station is being finished below this site, hence the work site that can be seen at the left in the first shot. Last year, the area around here was subjected to that big unexpected sinkhole.
This big Canada 150 sign was erected at the north end of Major's Hill Park, and on both days of the Canada Day weekend, it was popular for photo ops.
