Montreal & Ottawa - Day 7 - Ottawa, ON
10 Aug 2011
We beat the rain to make it to Rideau Hall early in the morning. Rideau Hall is the residence of the Governor General. We witnessed the changing of the guards and took a tour of the residence. It's nice that you can walk all over the grounds freely. It seemed odd since if you did that at the White House you'd be tackled before you got 5 steps in.We then headed back downtown to walk around Byward Market, the Rideau Canal Locks and the Notre-Dame Cathedral After the weather cleared up some we went to the Royal Canadian Mounted Policec Musical Ride stables.
