Museum of Science and Technology

One of our goals for 2019 was to take advantage of all that is available in Ottawa and that naturally includes its many museums. The Museum of Science and Technology is down the street and it literally turned John's life upside down!

Another Memorable Year

Our memories of 2018 includes friends (both new and old), family, travel and housesitting in the UK, Spain and France as well as a change of scenery as both ourselves and our daughter and son-in-law purchased new homes this year. While we're not ready to sell our Elliot Lake property just yet, John and I are grateful for the opportunity to explore the nation's capital this winter at our leisure.

Rain, Sleet and Snow - OH NO!

The temperatures have dropped considerably since mid October and we've endured rain, sleet and snow - often all within the same day! While driving from Elliot Lake to Ottawa at the end of last month we experienced our first snowfall of the season. Thankfully, by the time we reached Mattawa most of it had melted, but there was still a layer on the top of the picnic table.

October Splendour

From a visual standpoint autumn in northern Ontario is spectacular and while we were concerned 2018 may not fare as well colour wise as previous years (due to this summer's drought) our worries proved to be unfounded.
