Montreal and Ottawa (December 2006)  
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:28 PM

The second leg of our 20th Wedding Anniverary tour took us from New York to Canada.

It's been six years since we last visited Debbie in Ottawa, and nearly 40 years since Laura's last visit to Montreal.

Montreal   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:40 PM

Fairmont have spectacular hotels and resorts worldwide, but I think it's fair to say that The Queen Elizabeth in Montreal isn't likely to be on the cover of their brochure. In fact, it wasn't even in the brochure on the coffee table in our room, but I think this had less to do with Fairmont's embarrassment, than a previous guest's souvenir hunting! Click here to view this Page

Designed by Richard Buckminster Fuller - visionary architect, inventor, utopian and father of the geodesic dome - the Biosphère on the Île Sainte-Hélène in Montreal started life as the United States Pavilion at Expo '67. Click here to view this Page



Christmas with Debbie & Bill   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:42 PM

From Montreal we caught the train to Ottawa, arriving in the midst of a freezing-rain storm. Accomodation Chez D&B may not have had the views of the New Yorker, nor the pretence of the Queen Elizabeth, but Laura and I had a room to ourselves, and the kids had a PlayStation! Oh, and of course Debbie and Bill made us very welcome! Click here to view this Page



Ottawa   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:43 PM

After an intensive week of touristy stuff in NY and Montreal, I have to admit the chance to chill out for a few days in Ottawa was quite welcome. The weather had been unseasonably mild in Ottawa, so we didn't get the white Christmas we'd been expecting. However the temperature did drop, with snow falling on Christmas night, but not in time to freeze over the Rideau Canal for ice-skating. Click here to view this Page
