"New" Tour Day 25: Ottawa, ON
Monday Aug 15 2006
Spent the day at the National Archives where hubby is "mopping up" loose ends on his book research. The Archives and Library are undergoing renovations so things were not "business as usual" but we busked it. I hope that it means short-term pain for long-term gain.

Greatly enjoyed visiting the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography to see their current exhibits: The Painted Photograph and The Street. Then spent nearly three hours in the European Wing of the National Gallery of Canada visiting such old friends as Turner, Chantrey, Van Gough & Gaugin. Enoyed a tasty reasonably priced lunch there too.
Drove out to Barrhaven to meet Eric Eggleston at the studio where he's working on a new album. Got caught up on news over dinner and he tipped us off to a 24-hour coin operated car wash so we freshened up the smart on the way back to the hotel.
