Starting where I ended things yesterday, here is a view from the north of the Pretoria Bridge.
I carried on with my walk along the Rideau Canal, with skaters enjoying the ice. In the distance, the last big bend of the route looms, with the University Of Ottawa campus in the background.
More of the campus buildings can be seen along the east side of the Canal. The university has its roots going back to the mid-19th century, and today its main campus is a mix of buildings.
Now in that last stretch of the Canal, the view includes the Corktown Bridge, another pedestrian bridge that links Centretown to the University of Ottawa campus. Glimpses of the Chateau Laurier can be seen as one approaches.
I left the Canal here, and headed up onto the bridge for views (avoiding photographing the numerous love locks on either side). This view looks back at where I've come from.
And this looks north to the bridges that span the Canal before its final locks. I always enjoy making this walk at least once during Winterlude. Tomorrow we return to ice sculptures and begin wrapping up the Winterlude series.
