Autumn in Ottawa

It's still just about Autumn (fall) in Ottawa... although it was 2c this morning when we went to the farmers market. Its been really pretty in the Glebe which has a lot of old trees.

The road on the right is closed on Sunday mornings except for bicycles and goes for miles along the canal to Byward market. Chil had bought the first bike that she's ever owned, I've got one for the first time in about 10 years and we've even got a little trailer for the girls! They love the trailer but don't love the helmets.

We spent a weekend with our friend Mike Shanahan in Montreal, who was visiting on a sabbatical from the UK. Here's Namwezi running after squirrels. Our friend Sylvain had taught the girls a few words in French the weekend before and they remembered to say "bonjour" and "au reviour" to the Quebecois in the park.

And here's Namwezi again, getting to grips with the local sporting culture. Wamaka is in the shadows.

Hope you have enjoyed Autumn. We're getting prepared for the winter that is surely just around the corner. Last year was mild but apparently they had 8 meters of snow the year before, so much more than Toronto.

Love, Dylan and Chil
