The canal skating experience

Whillikers.

If ya didn't know the secrets of finding a good time in this town, ya might think that in Ottawa, on a kinda lamely labelled provincial civic holiday in the middle of winter, there'd be nothing else to do but skate on the kinda worse-for-wear Rideau Canal. And that ya might be one of maybe a million-odd Ottawattamies to think the same thing.

Actually, upon reflection, ya might be perilously close to right about that...

Aw come on, it's cute and charming like our very own March of the Penguins day.

And I, apparently, am the metaphorical seal lurking under the warm, fuzzy ice. Although with less fishy breath. Usually. And bigger ears. Always.

Curious. I just told the guys I suspected the Osgoode Fish and Game Association of being somewhat cleverer than usual...

Either way, I'm bein' headhunted, huh...?
