Continuing on where I left off yesterday with the Abbey at the Mackenzie King Estate, this place provides great photo opportunities.
The stones from this next section were salvaged from the original Centre Block and brought here.
Among them is a stone tablet containing the Arms of England- the mother country surrounded by stones of the nation it gave rise to, a deliberate choice by Mackenzie King.
This set came from a house that was to be demolished. Mackenzie King found in this the inspiration for the entire idea of the Abbey, saved it, and brought it here.
This came from the same house- a home in Ottawa once owned by a former premier of Quebec, a deliberate choice by Mackenzie King to pay respects to the French origins of the country.
Beyond, the woods were in fall colours.
