    Parliament's cats

    Still not part of Gatineau... But behind the Parliament of Canada, a man takes care of a bunch of streets cats. The Parliament's cats. It's very cute sight and worth at least a picture!

    I've heard or read somewhere that peoples help him out with donations so he can continue feeding his friend.

    Hidden birds

    Maybe I shouldn't tell because our favorite part of it is that nobody goes there... Just a few weeks ago, at the begining of march, as we went to greet the birds after the ice melted a little on the river, there was no print in the snow. No print! We were the first to see the birds this year! It's silly, I know...

    On the La Lievre river, just above one of the Brascan dam, birds from who-knows-where, swan and ducks mostly, bathes in the river as if they owned it. We park the car behind a Dollar store and go down the hill to the river to feed them bread, sing with them and take some pictures... Like kids I guess...

    A nice way to get some fresh air in between two seasons... Between ice fishing and summer fishing maybe...!
