So, this weekend, I took a quick jaunt to Ottawa to see Garth Brooks in concert. It turns out I know a lot of people in Ottawa, at least, a lot considering I’ve never lived there!  Or really spent that much time there at all. Including this weekend, I’ve spent maybe seven nights there, over three trips. So instead of really just going in and out for the concert, I spent a few extra days in the city to visit with people.

The show was my last real agenda item for the weekend and I was travelling straight to the airport, after a bite to eat, where I spent my last night. Because of that, I brought no bag for the weekend and, more important, I didn’t bring my nice camera! I couldn’t take that into the concert and had nowhere to store it during the show so I travelled with only my little P&S. At least I had something…

Waiting for my flight out of Halifax. I enjoy flying. I'm always sad when I drive by the airport - or, worse, visit! - and don't leave on a plane. I do prefer flying to places more interesting than Ottawa but... Beggers can't be choosers?

Pre-concert food and drinks at The 3 Brewers. I had their "Neibourhood Beer" - Settlers Point Ale. Had some crafty beer after the concert as well.
