Ottawa and Kingston

This summer we decided to take a trip to Ottawa, Canada's capital city. It is a four hour drive from downtown Toronto. Half way there, we stopped at a place called Kingston for lunch, which is a nice stop on its own.

Click on the picture, to take you to the album. Ottawa is a beautiful city and is definitely worth seeing. We also drove into Quebec which borders Ontario. You know you've crossed the border when all the signs suddenly turn into French from English!

In Ottawa you can see the Parliament buildings, the Canadian Royal mint, vaious museums like the museum of civilization, museum of nature and the army museum.

In Kingston you can visit the 1000 islands, Smiths Falls and Fort Henry.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!!

Hi Nalini!
I liked the pic of Hilton Falls. It's serene and beautiful, I guess;'ll take time out and visit sometime.
