Ottawa: Exploring its Food, Pubs and Sights!

After finishing up at the Libraries and Archives I headed east on Wellington and came to Lyon’s Street.  There is this interesting arch across the street commemorating Veterans.

Sparks Street is  mall area that went for several blocks.

A carving above a door:

A street lamp and flowers from Carmello’s Italian Restaurant while having a wonderful pasta dish with artichokes.

A bookstore: Canada for Sale!

A pub – D’Arcy McGees an Irish Pub!  I visited with my cousin Jim Gallagher who is researching Kennedys.
