May 21st was a picture perfect day for touring Ottawa with dear friends. The tulips were bursting around the city. The sun was shining. The parliament grounds were filled with the young and the old soaking in the spring sun at the heart of our nation`s capital.
Doomsday was far from our minds. By the time we had realized that 6:00 pm had come and gone, we were back home on the patio raising the first of several glasses while fat, juicy steaks sizzled on the barbecue. It was rapturous!
