Ottawa Day 2: Downtown Ottawa Sight Seeing


After breakfast, we drove to downtown Ottawa for more sight seeing. Ben’s initial plan was to visit a museum but it looks like we do not have enough time for it. We only have half a day here before we drive back to Toronto. So, we just walk around the downtown area for some window browsing sight seeing.
