P is for Peace Tower on Parliament Hill


The view from the top of the Peace Tower in Parliament Hill in Ottawa in pelting rain.
A closer look at the clock in the Peace Tower taken on an earlier, equally wet miserable day. The windows directly beneath the clock are the observation deck from where the top two photos were taken.

Thanks for visiting my ABC Wednesday. It's very nice to know a fellow Postcrosser. I've been a member since 2009 but was inactive for the whole 2010 and just re-activate my account this Jan. :)

@Willa: I was there on Monday and downtown Ottawa was very quiet - no one was around, they'd all gone back to their constituency and no one (at the time) knew if/when they would back)
