The Rock Sculptures of Remic Rapids


The Rock Sculptures of Remic Rapids
Our last post of the Remic Rapids sculptures was Graeme’s video of the drummers and fire dancers who were performing there during his last visit to the rapids. Today, I had a business meeting in downtown Ottawa and decided to stop at Remic Rapids on the way home. I hadn’t really thought about the temperature when I left home so found the 4C temperatures with wind gusts of about 30kph coming at me from across the water a rather invigorating experience since I was only wearing a light summer weight coat with no sweater or suit jacket underneath.

It made for a full day outing but a very enjoyable one.
