After a lovely milestone celebration dinner out with my three favourite people, we went for a stroll near Dow’s Lake.
It was interesting to see the Commissioner’s Park flower beds in August, months after the tulips had their moment in the sun. The clouds dispersed long enough for us to take our after dinner stroll through the rain-soaked patchwork of green, purple and red.
It was refreshing to have the pathways mostly to ourselves! We took turns with photo opportunities.
We had fun at the expense of The Man with Two Hats statue.
We ooh-ed and awe-ed as we walked deeper into the gardens and saw more colourful flowers.
After encountering a commemoration plaque for Air India Flight 182, our mood became sombre and respectful.
One of my companions reminded us that it was getting late. The skies were darkening. I captured a picture of the half moon.
One companion took off on his bicycle. The remaining party walked back towards Little Italy to catch our respective buses to our next destinations.
We all returned to our little corner of the city, via different paths of space and time.
Thanks for dropping by. Keep watching for more pictorial blog posts about parks around the city of Ottawa. Ahh, vacation!
