Canadian Firefighters Memorial, June 18, 2017

I've been going to the Seaway to photograph memorials for my blog site, titled, Memorials in Ottawa. The weather forecast for this day kept me in Ottawa and I photographed the Canadian Firefighters Memorial. The predicted thunderstorms didn't happen while I visited the site. We had a warm day with very high winds.


Work on the park to the west of the Firefighters Memorial has now completed. You can find the fire pole at about the picture's centre. Look to the left near its base and you'll see the firefighter statue.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, May 21, 2017

With a low chance of rain I went to photograph the memorial. It did rain but it came down very lightly. Except for one tree, that hasn't got any leaves yet and may have died, the landscaping vegetation has come along quite nicely. The lone pine seems to have settled into its base and now puts its energy into growth.




All the other trees, pretty much everywhere, have their leaves coming on, but
this tree has no leaves showing. It might come along but it doesn't look good.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, April 2, 2017

Almost three months have past since I last visited the memorial site. This sunny day reached 10°C. Most of the snow has melted away. The site looks really good. The new park offers a really good view of the firefighter as one approaches on foot from the west.
