We took a somewhat unplanned trip to Ottawa this past weekend, mainly to go and see the tulip festival.

The temperature was pretty cool on Sunday, but the rain that had been forecast held off and there was quite a bit of sun as well.  Because the weather was not that great, i think that is one of the reasons why it was not as busy as we thought it would be.

This time around, we managed to park near Dow Lake where the majority of the tulips are.  For ten bucks, you get to park your car in the park across from Dow Lake.  From there, all you need to do is cross the street and you’re there (at Dow Lake).

We also made it up to Parliament Hill to see the tulips there.  Along with the tulips, we saw some pretty serious looking RCMP officers, one who had a Colt C8 Carbine slung over his chest.  I definitely felt and saw a heightened sense of security on the hill.

It was certainly nice to see that the tulips, at least most of them, were in full bloom.  I am not sure what state they will be in this coming weekend though.

Who dares wins.
