Alongside The Mighty Chaudiere

Continuing on today, here we have views from the main viewing area of the Chaudiere Falls. And here is one of the videos I took during this visit.


I continued a little further on, towards the end of the pathway where I took more shots and the second of these videos of the falls. I have sat before in the chairs up here. The roar of the waterfalls has a lulling effect; on a pleasant day it would be all too easy to fall asleep while sitting.


On my way out I photographed the view upstream. The Ottawa River is wide here. The buildings in the background are at Tunney's Pasture on the Ottawa side of the river. A portion of the old railway bridge I mentioned the other day can be seen as well.


One last shot for this walk. I passed by the War Museum. Across the street is some parkland and I paused to photograph this. I'm guessing it's lavender, but I assume my gardening readers can confirm it readily. In that regard, I'm hopeless.

  1. Looks close enough for lavender to me, but it also might be a type of sage.

    Are you having any blogger problems? I can't see my reading list anymore and some blogs take forever to open. Also my blog listing on people's favourites list seem to have changed to some weird code. I wonder if I am even showing on reading lists? All very strange.
