When talking about winter fun, one thing that comes to my mind is Canada, especially Ontario 🙂
The cold season is long in the North part of North America and having fun is the best thing to do. In the years with a lack of snow for instance, Canadians are unhappy, because they cannot use their snow toys 🙂
In fact I heard Canadians saying that they don’t like summer, because it’s too hot – huh…
In the winter, families go outside to have fun and share the joy of the snow with big zest.
I can do it mom! – says this little one 🙂
BTW: The Rideau Canal Skateway is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and people enjoy skating along a length of 7.8 kilometers (4.8467 miles).
I didn’t skate since I was a teenager, but I enjoyed taking photos 🙂
During my 6 years of living in Ottawa I had the opportunity to see and photograph many winter activities. One that’s also popular is Ice fishing on the Ottawa river or nearby lakes.
Some find that it’s even funnier to fish at dusk… I took this photo on the other side of Ottawa river, in Gatineau, Quebec.
And if you like winter outdoors activities, Gatineau Park offers 361.31 km2 (139.50 sq mi) of hiking and sporting.
But the winter fun in Canada doesn’t stop with winter sports. For some, a good activity is to admire the Centennial Flame while keeping warm with a hot coffee.
** This is a fountain with a symbolic flame in the center, and the the coat of arms of each province around it. It is located in front of the Parliament building in Ottawa. As I said, the winter is long in Canada and the fun is great. I hope you like what you have seen so far 🙂 Stay tuned for more to come in my next posts!
