Pictures of my trip to Ottawa

Some of the scenery we saw driving on the highway,just look at those colors!
This is the waterfall going into North Bay
This is the mountain scenery near Mattawa


Pumpkin Latte !!!!!

It was soooo good but I realized while I was there all week and~~~~ of COURSE ~~~~~~~ I must try different coffees my REAL favourite is the Cinnamon Dolce Latte
Delicious~~~~~~~ I am talking a serious YUMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!
It took several different tries to find the one I truly love !! ((HA HA ))


This was taken at the farmers market in Ottawa.There was so much to see, all of it colorful and gorgeous!











Look at these gorgeous pumpkins !!!!













Everything at the market was appealing.I was wishing I could buy everything!!













I did buy some crunchy tarty Quebec Spartan apples and some smaller pumpkins and gourds !










So many colors !!
All fall colors did ya notice??














This is the bridge to the US !!
My daughter and I went to Messena shopping.
Some serious retail therapy!!
After all the stores and malls we did the one that is the most fun for me believe it or not is the grocery stores, the variety they get compared to the puny little variety sent to Canada is quite noticable ! So I stocked up on stuff I cannot find here at home.
It was a great little trip for me I had quality time with my daughter and that's all that mattered.I miss her already !!!

Your pictures and the sights are wonderful. It looks as if you had a wonderful time.

I sometimes go to grocery stores in other areas, too. It is nice to be able to pick up things you can't find at home.

Brenda@View From The Pines said...

Stunning photos! Can add them to your vast collection! And because of you, I at least tried the pumpkin frappacino! I don't usually buy hot coffee at Starbucks. Just have them ground their beans to take home. And the cold version was delicious too!
