Buildings and BeaverTail on the Byward

Beavertail at Byward Market

Heading off to the airport soon so this is a quick one. Had a great day in and around the city of Ottawa yesterday with Stevie and did the tourist thing: a guided tour around the Parliament Buildings and a trip up the Peace Tower. All that walking had given us an appetite so we stopped at the famous BeaverTail stand and had a maple and chocolate BeaverTail each with a coffee. We didn’t eat alone – all that sweetness attracted a few wasps but they didn’t bother us too much. We popped in to Tucson’s Roadhouse and talked about the possibility of gigging there next time I visit and asked about t-shirts but they didn’t have any. Neither did they have any t-shirts at the Rainbow or any of the music shops we tried which is a shame as they make great souvenirs of a musical visit. When we got back home I had another great meal with Stevie and Laura who, I must say, have been the perfect hosts. Finally Stevie and I met Mike at a bar in Manotick for a farewell drink and it looks like the guys may have bagged a gig there which is great. So, farewell Ottawa – hopefully I’ll see you next year some time. It’s back home to England now and time to start planning a trip to Clarksdale in April to catch up with the Myers Brothers again.

    Fab all round. Glad the weather held out. The gigs look immense. We will all book tickets for next time and have an October-in-Ottawa trip.
