this and that

The ‘Les Yeux’ mural at the University of Ottawa recently received a facelift.  It was originally pained in 1972 by well-known Ottawa artist James Boyd.

I remember seeing these eyes as a kid skating along the Rideau Canal.  The mural used to creep me out because the eyes appear to follow you.

We haven’t had any significant rainfall in the city for over a month.  I’ve never seen the Rideau River so low.  In some places people are now walking across the river instead of using the bridges.

 

We came across a lost great dane last night.  She was too skittish to get close to and I was afraid she would run out on the busy road.  She’s been lost for awhile.  I hope someone catches her soon before she gets injured.   You can read about her story here: http://ottawa.kijiji.ca/c-community-lost-found-MISSING-DOG-PLEASE-HELP-W0QQAdIdZ397749074
