Lunch in the "Market"
Last week an old pal David, visited from London England for a few days. He is Canadian but has now spent more of his life in England than Canada. He is also an artist so we had a good time chatting and sketching together. Lunch, of course, is always a prime opportunity and the natural place to take him was the By Ward Market district to find a restaurant with a patio. Something I rarely do.
When travelling, I want to sketch everything. But here in my own city, it's more challenging to see those opportunities, or perhaps feel an urgency to catch it while I can. So, it was great to having a sketching pal show around town because it helped me see Ottawa through the eyes of a visitor.
