Summer Getaway Day 2 - Rideau Canal

Rideau Canal - a view from under the bridge

We had a few hours to spare before we took our tour of the Centre Block at the Parliament of Canada so we decided to take a stroll along the Rideau Canal.

We had originally planned to take a boat tour along the canal but since the tour would make us late for the Parliament tour, we decided to rather walk. Our feet did not take us as far as the boat could have, nevertheless it was a peaceful, canal side amble.

Rideau Canal is one of the World's Heritage Site. During summer, people would jog around, canoe and ride boats along the canal. During winter, the canal is turned into a rink enjoyed by ice skaters.

With all the surrounding greens and the slow breeze of the wind,  authentic bagpipe music filled the air. It had truly transformed into the perfect place under the sun.
