Tomatoes and Sunday Bike Day
I bought four plants and one of them was billed as a yellow cherry tomato. It turns out, the label was correct. However, the one plant is much smaller than the other tomato plants and it doesn't look like they will catch up.
Even the red ones are slow to come along.
But they do look nice, all in a bowl together. Too bad it's not more.
Sundays, they close off some of the roads until 1pm and we usually go for a ride. Yesterday, we biked toward downtown and then crossed the bridge at Island Park and continued on the Quebec side of the river. We crossed back at the bridge leading into the downtown core (the Interprovincial I think), the one with the pedestrian and bike side planked in wood. That's me with the Museum of Civilization in the background (on the Quebec side of the river).
Here's Peter with Parliament Hill in the background (the Ottawa side). A little touristy perhaps but it does make for a good picture. Peter is mugging for the camera a little.
Here I am, struggling up the hill toward the top of the steep set of locks at the end of the Rideau Canal. There are a lot of people leaning over the bridge at the very top, watching the boats.
These boats had reached the top of the several steps and are about to be released into the canal proper.
We got back to the Pretoria Bridge a bit after noon and stopped for a bite. Peter's checking his bike computer. We did about 37 kms that day - not too hot or humid for a change.
