Downtown Ottawa on a rainy fall day.

We had planned this trip downtown so we could see some of the new and old sculptures. The rain did not deter us. Oscar Peterson, internationally renowned jazz pianist, has his own corner in front of the National Art Centre. His recordings can be heard from within the piano.

This sculptural representation of the essence of the tree sits behind the National Art Gallery on Nepean Point. Anne and I really like it.

Gathering beneath "Mamon" is the place to meet friends in Ottawa.

As we searched for the Oscar Peterson sculpture we came across this tribute to music behind the National Art Centre.

It really is a magnificant sculoture.

And last, but not least, is the almost completed Ottawa Convention Centre. It will be a place to visit and enjoy for decades to come. The shacks on the bed of the Rideau Canal are there in readiness for the opening in late January or early February of the Rideau Canal Skateway.
