Ottawa is an amazing city in the summer. After a long wet spring everyone is out as soon as the sun shines. Combine that with the preparations for the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, the area around Mooney’s Bay, Hog’s Back Falls and the Rideau Canoe Club is being used to capacity. One can only imagine what the crowds will be like at the Festival. There were Dragon Boats everywhere all evening as people rotated on the boats so many teams could train. The Rideau River was also full of people using canoes and kayaks. The Pirate ship was docked for the night, it takes children out on the water for pirate adventures during the day.
