Sunday Picnic

Krys and her kids, and I went for a picnic on Maple Island on the Rideua River.

This is probably the most historic area of Ottawa, and yet a lot of people know nothing about the history of the area.

Here are a couple of websites that will give you a little history:

A history of Chrichton Street Public school which I attended: http://www.crichtonccc.ca/c1/history_e.html
