We were in Ottawa last week for skating and a dining spree: The Black Cat, Frasier, Les Fougeres. Could it get any better than that?
Ed, the super-taster, was delighted at every turn, not that I minded the indulgence.
I thrilled to glide again on Ottawa's historic, gigantic skating rink, coming in at Patterson Creek on a super cold clear morning. Not many people around this early; brand new surface. It was almost scary...the smoothness and vastness of the expanse of hard water!
Patterson Creek, surrounded by an old residential neighborhood, flows into the Rideau. With its lovely heated Chalet it's a handy point of access.
