Canadian Skywatch

I was in Canada the last weekend of May for a wedding, and I managed to get in a few sightseeing tours of the beautiful city of Ottawa. This is a shot of the Canadian Parliament Building.While there, we took a river boat cruise.
Since I only had my point and shoot camera, it was easy to ask another tourist to take this picture of me with my baby sister.
Ottawa....Canada's capital.....Parliament Hill...the round building on the left is the Parliamentary Library.

Thank you for showing some photos of Ottawa. A city we don't know much about, only that the mother of our present queen Beatrix was there during WW II. Queen Beatrix and her sisters were also there. They were little children at the time.
