We visited Ottawa for the big Canada 150 celebrations. Waited 3 hours, 9 - noon, in a line up that ground to a halt beside the Bank of Canada building. All the while being passed by other Canadians who instead walked up and merged into the crowd - no wonder the line stopped moving. Newspapers are billing the day as chaotic - they got that right. Organizers drop the ball on this one. Totally disorganized lineups, no where to use the washroom, no food for sale once you got onto the hill....and then there was the rain - showers, downpours, thunder storms, the works. So our Canada Day 150 was a real downer. But we returned on Monday and toured about seeing the sights including a good amount of time on Parliament Hill

This is one of four virtuals in Ottawa today - 2 on this site and 2 on Terracaching. Just over 4 years on this one and no finds yet? Okay, another OCNA FTF for me. Thanks DudleyGrunt
