Continuing on where I left off yesterday. I mentioned how the parkland on and around Green Island had several monuments. This is one of them, one of two matching sculptures of the Canadian soldier, doctor, and poet John McCrae. He is the author who composed the poem In Flanders Fields during the darkest days of World War One. Another of this statue by the same artist is in his hometown of Guelph, Ontario.

John McCrae And The Flock
This is a view of the west branch of the Rideau Falls from the platform alongside the neighbouring property.
That property is home to research labs of the National Research Council. Tulips here were at their last stage as I passed by.
Heading back, I photographed some tulips through the fence outside the Royal Canadian Mint.
