Tonight after work I hopped in my car and drove into Downtown Ottawa. I met up downtown with Christin, Brenda, and Rachel (?). We had dinner at an Irish Pub in the Market. Then after dinner we walked down to Confederation park to check out the ice sculptures at Winterlude. I was a good girl and brough my D-SLR with me! I have to say I'm still in the learning stage with this camera. The first couple of shots didn't come out at all, but then once I figured out what settings would work best, I got some lovely shots.
Our main reason for meeting up downtown was to go see one of the performers at Winterlude. The opening act was called Swing, and they were a lot of fun! There were fireworks, large puppets, break dancers, native performers, and pipers! The main act was called the Road Hammers (never heard of them before was just going for an evenign out). About 3 songs into the main act my hands and toes were just frozen and I gave up! I don't understand how people love winter activities. Needless to say I came home and took a nice hot bath!
