After a few hours we returned to our bus for a tour along Sussex Drive and Embassies in town. We also saw the Rideau Waterfall which was very interesting. Lunch was at the By Way Market. A place called Tuckers. It was a very good all you can eat Buffet. Which normally is not so good but this had a lot of good food.
We returned to the bus tour and were taken to the War Museum.

What a place. It was so interesting. We walked through Canada's War History through the ages. It was great to have Mom with us because she was able to talk about our family's involvement in different Wars. My Great Grandfather fought for Canada in World War One. She also told us about D-Day which her Dad was involved in. He was in the first wave to France. After the war Mom and her brother and sister were able to re inact the feeling by going for a ride in one of the troop carrier boats. We were able to also get that feeling at the Museum today. By the time we'd finished the first floor it was after 7!! We couldn't believe it. The day flew.
Now we are in the hotel room having a glass of wine. Marie and I went to the market to get some cheese and goodies. Time for bed.
