Ottawa in June

Hey everyone...

So this summer was a definite blur of ups and downs, of learning once again what we both love and hate about our wonderful Canadian home. And now, here we are in September, and as one of my previous posts revealed, it's finally hit that we really are gonna be here for awhile! So since that's a fact, we might as well all get comfortable with this new situation, and I better start sharing about our lives in Canada!

With that said, I've been browsing through some of the pictures Jeff took throughout this mixed bag of a summer, and I've realized that we had some pretty fabulous times reuniting with family and friends. So over the next while, along with updating you on the joys and stresses of "life after Japan," I want to share some of these great pics with all of you.

In June we went to our country's capital with Dagmar and Dave for a weekend. Here are a few of the sights Jeff captured during our time in Ottawa...

We stayed in a quasi-bed and breakfast/old folks' home that was situated really close to the ByWard Market. On one of our strolls through the market, we noticed these funny looking dogs. When Jeff asked their owner if he could take their picture, the guy suddenly started this routine with them, involving amazing obedience. They actually have treats hanging out of their mouths in this picture, and they are patiently waiting for the "okay."

And a close-up...

And these two pictures are of a nearby cathedral taken from the balcony of our room at something like 5 in the morning. No, I was not up. That would be Jeff, with the other woman, his camera... :)

It's sort of funny looking at your home with the eyes of an outsider, isn't it?
