Two more of the snow sculptures in the Byward Market that were set up in 2014 during Winterlude with a nod to the Winter Olympics.
Near them lies Beavertails- the prime location of a Canadian company, owned locally, that makes fried pastry treats in the shape of a beaver tail. They're open all year, but do big business during Winterlude, both here and the various locations along the Canal.
This is one of them, with cinnamon and sugar being my choice. There are other flavours on the menu too.
And another Canadian food icon: poutine. This is at Dunn's, an eatery in the Byward Market. At its basic form, it's fries covered with gravy and cheese curds. Just the thing for a cold day.
The Rideau Canal again, in a different spot. This is below the Bank Street Bridge where it crosses the Canal.
Here's one of the arches of the bridge itself, taken that year.
And just east of the bridge, this view looking to the other side, where a former convent looms above the slope, now playing host to the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Skaters downtown. Here we're below the Mackenzie King Bridge, with the Laurier Avenue Bridge in the background.
The view from above. Confederation Park lies to the right, with the Cartier Square Drill Hall beyond the Laurier Bridge in the background.
And in early evening.
