My Week in Pictures

We had a fabulous week. We spent a few days in Ottawa. We explored the downtown area. We found a nice pub with great food. We went to a farmer’s market. My daughter bought rhubarb macaroons! We bought honey and we even had a sit-down breakfast with the best coffee! Street food! Gotta love it!
Later in the week we headed to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the prettiest places to visit. We went with another couple and we did a wine tour. We went to three wineries (Pondview Estate Winery, Pillitteri Estates Winery, and Konzelmann Estate Winery). It was an awesome experience. Each one was unique. I think I like wine even more now than before (is that possible?)! We went to Casino Niagara and I even bumped into someone I used to work with. We enjoyed a lovely dinner on main street Niagara-on-the-Lake (Zees Grill).  We shared a Classic Caesar, complete with beer-battered anchovies and hard-boiled quail eggs. And, are you ready for this, Nova Scotia Lobster Poutine (home-cut Yukon fries, butter poached lobster, white cheddar cheese curds, red wine veal jus, and hollandaise sauce)! OMG! Need I say more? Yes, we are going back there soon! I finished off the meal with pan-seared Atlantic salmon that melted in my mouth.

More tomorrow...
