 Hello,  Today started off with a visit to the Plains of Abraham.  We went to view the Odyssey which is a great multimedia presentation describing the start of our Country.  Then we went for a great walk in the Park.  The day was beautiful and sunny.  Just so enjoyable.  Afterwards (which turned out to be around 2..where did the day go), then on to the Citadel.  There were two tours to choose from.  We chose to visit the Governor Generals Residence.  She has two - one in Ottawa and one at the Citadel.  It's only open on the weekend so we might not get another good chance to see it.  It was so interesting.  We went into the Private Residence and saw the official state rooms.  Beautiful.  Especially the rooms which overlook the water. What a view.

We then went for a carriage ride.  Lots of fun.  After that it was a walk thru Old Town , dinner on a outdoor patio and back to the hotel.  It was around 9 am when we left and 9 pm when we came home.  Fun was had by all.
