Day 114

August 17th

We slept in a bit this morning and got up in time for breakfast. However, we were running a bit behind for our bi-plane ride and had to scoot over to the Aviation museum pronto! I didn't realize how far away the museum actually was, so we were biking pretty fast for almost an hour. When we got there we found out that the guy who was supposed to take us was not there. His plane was still in for repairs. So we decided to do the Beaver plane which was a bush plane that could land on water. We did a tour over part of the city and mostly the Gatineau Hills. It was super cool and we did a brief water landing. Dustin got to sit in the co-pilot chair and got some sweet pictures from that seat. I was waaaay in the back and got a little wooozy from the smell of fuel :s Anyways, it was really nice to see everything that I've seen in the city from an aerial view. When we landed, we had a little freak out from excitement and then once we calmed down, we checked out the rest of the museum. We mosied back and made some stops along the way for snack or sight seeing. Some highlights are the park along Sussex, Rideau Hall and the Rideau Falls. On the way back I picked up my teapot from the Mud Oven. It's looks pretty good and I'm happy with the colors for the most part. I should have done an extra layer of blue water in some spots, but oh well can't change that now. Then we came back and took a nap! My napping habit has become contagious and Dustin is enjoying the down time. After that we had supper and relaxed a bit before going for a nice evening walk.
