On our way back from Mont Tremblant, Quebec. We popped in to visit my father on his 83rd. birthday in Gatineau, Quebec. We crossed the river separating the two provinces (Ontario and Quebec) and spent part of the day walking on Sparks Street Mall, a popular pedestrian destination for shopping, eating or relaxing on one of the many benches dotting the whole street. During the summer months, it is not uncommon to see and hear buskers performing.
The photos that follow depict Canada's Parliament and the surrounding area in the National Capital Region. Visitor information can be found here.
