I had to go to Ottawa for a meeting and only had a couple hours off in my schedule so a colleague took me on a walk around Dow's Lake and the Rideau Canal, along the Queen Elizabeth Parkway. We saw some very nice houses and floral arrangements, and I got to feed some Canadian geese that were hanging out by the lake! We didn't have time to stop at the Pavilion, but it is possible to rent paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, bicycles and more. There are also a few restaurants with patios overlooking the lake - a really great spot to discover in Ottawa!
