A visit to Ottawa

As I said in my previous post, I worked the Saturday of Easter weekend. When I got home we packed an overnight bag and headed to Ottawa to visit Jordan’s sister and her husband. They recently moved to Ontario from New Brunswick and at the time were staying in a hotel while waiting for the moving truck to show up. They invited us to stay the night in their suite and the next day we wandered around the city, playing tourists. We walked around Parliament Hill, some markets where I tried my first Beaver Tail (yum!), hung out on the roof-top garden at the closed mall, and purchased some books at the Chapters across the street.

I bought the new Sophie Kinsella book, Mini-Shopaholic, and another book I’ve been wanting to read for some time now: My Maasai Life (Robin Wiszowaty). I also checked out the Kobo e-readers on display and fell in love. 🙂 I am now a proud owner of one of these devices, and I absolutely love it!
