We are staying in Gatineau, Quebec on Rue Laurier next door to the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
From here we could walk across the Alexandra Bridge to downtown Ottawa. I made a quick sketch of part of the East Block of the Parliament Hill building complex.
Sitting across the street I had to wait every time for tour busses, pedestrians and cars to go by to get a glimpse of the building, but got this much done before the rain started. It is a busy town with lots of interesting scenery to sketch weather permitting.
