We woke up to a gorgeous day and decided that this was our last chance to go to our Nation’s Capital while we were so close. So, packing the girls into the tuck we started off on the 90 min ride to Ottawa.
The day was beautiful, the trees were so pretty and the roads were clear and not busy at all. We picked the perfect day to make this drive to Ottawa. Along with our friendly google map quest, we found the right exit off the highway to our first stop Parliament buildings.
Unfortunately, it was still a work week for the rest of the world and many other people thought it was a perfect day to go sight seeing too lol. We then decided to park the truck and walk around so Bill could get his pictures.
Home to the Senate, House of Commons and the parliament library. Free tours are offered daily.
Even though we have seen these buildings a few times in the past, and even gone on tours inside. They are still awe inspiring with the architecture and history that you know they represent. The Parliament buildings look so majestic against the blue sky in Ottawa.
This building used to be the nerve centre of Canada’s government during Canada’s first hundred years. Guided tours take you inside restored heritage rooms to explore parliamentary life in the late 19th century.
The building will be fix up to house the interim Chamber and associated support functions, four committee rooms and support functions, and offices for the Prime Minister, House Officers, party leaders and party whips.
