Not only is this the first Where In Ottawa challenge of 2013, it also falls on the birthday of a wonderful person: Happy Birthday to Miriam L.
Miriam and I have never met in real life but I have known her for a couple of years online and I think that if we lived in the same city, we'd be best buddies. From her taste in music (she and I could quote lyrics from The Smiths all day long) to her writing style, and to our mutual view on the lost spirit of Christmas, we have a lot in common.
When I learned that Miriam's birthday was to fall on the first Monday in January, I promised her that I would keep her in mind when I chose the location for my Where In Ottawa challenge. Eventually, Miriam plans to visit our city, and when she does I would like to show her one of my favourite spots in the entire Ottawa-Gatineau region.
Your job, dear readers, is to identify that location. To that end, here is this month's photo, dedicated to my virtual friend:
And here are the rules:
- When you have identified this location (and be as specific as possible), leave your answer in the Comments section for this post. No e-mail messages, tweets, or Facebook posts will be accepted.
- If you have already won a Where In Ottawa challenge, you can still play to earn bragging rights, but no giveaway will be awarded. You already have it anyway.
- If you have been to this location with me at any time, you are ineligible to play. You have an unfair advantage.
- You can guess as many times as you like.
And if you don't already follow Miriamon Twitter or her running blogdo so. Tell her that I sent you.
Update: Where In Ottawa has been solved for January. Congratulations to Christine Brown of Toronto (no relation, but we know each other: we went to school together from grades 7 to 9).
To see the location, tune in to this week's Wordless Wednesday.
