Canal Songs

One of the best parts of living in Ottawa is the spectacular Rideau Canal - the massive waterway that stretches across the city, curving in and out of neighbourhoods as this magnificent city middle treat. Often a hub for runners, bikers, lover and friends - it's also a wonderful place to be quiet and alone. If I feel like I haven't gotten any exercise in a day or feel particularly cooped up, I stroll down the street towards the canal and just tour the lengths of the beautiful water. There are little places to sit and people watch of course, but I find it fascinating to just walk - I'm always amazed how far away I end up, while still being in the middle of everything.

The other day I went for a long walk in the evening and when this popped on my iPod  - I had to smile. Here's, obviously, the perfect song for a canal jaunt:
