It's -17C! With the beautiful sunshine almost balmy. It's our first afternoon in Ottawa, 1st stop, the Rideau Canal, 6 kilometres of frozen water, 6 kilometres of fun. We skated fast, to keep warm and get a workout. All good, but I think my body wanted to go swimming because I tripped and took an awesome sliding dive. I have a big fat pink rose on my knee as a reminder. Brrr...it's cold outside. Keep warm, folks.
