Brown's Inlet Ottawa, ON, 2006 1 of a few

 

Brown's Inlet is a body of water in central Ottawa. A former creek, it grew considerably in size with the creation of the Rideau Canal, into which it now empties. Originally considerably larger, the inlet was shortened and divided so that today on the surface it is two ponds, but they are connected underground. The inlet is in the southern part of the Glebe neighbourhood, emptying into the canal near the Bank Street Bridge. The two ponds of the inlet are surrounded by parks and expensive homes. The ponds are home to a wide array of wild life including frogs, turtles, fish, and birds.

 

We lived at 41 Findley Ave in Ottawa which was one block up the hill from Brown's Inlet Park...
i spent many hours in the park with Buddy along with several more of his canine friends...

That grass is very green, Peter...I didn't know Canada had such stuff!
....peter:): we have green weeds in our yard but there are many lawns made of grass... we don't use a weed killer because the water would run into the lake... which is also the source of our drinking water....petersmile

Sounds like happy memories for you.

I'll be in Canada on Friday evening - just down the road from you in Montreal airport as I change planes before heading back to the UK.
....peter:): Montreal isn't that far from where we were in Ottawa Alan... but we still live in Moonbeam....petersmile
A really lovely place to be!
....peter:): it is a lovely park Elizabeth... there are several painters that spend days painting the park from different positions... besides several people have wedding pictures taken along side of the pond....petersmile

I, too, am struck by the verdant green, Peter
....peter:): We do have grass in Canada Lisl... this picture was taken in Sept. so the grass isn't cut too close at that time of year...

My son is in Ottawa now and likes the city. He walks to work from his hotel and we talk on the phone during his walk.
