The Crowds Go Wild in Ottawa for Canada Day (once they discover D.K. is in the House)

Canada Day has showered me with fireworks: I just found out that I have won the Ottawa Travel Tourism Award 2011 for my article in Canadian Geographic Travel magazine detailing my trip to the nation’s capital to celebrate our national holiday, my kids in tow. It was a two-part piece, one written by a Canadian (that would be me) , the other by an American, in this case veteran travel writer Bruce Stutz who also won for his contribution. I had no idea the series was even submitted! Thank-you editor Dan Rubinstein! Here’s the  piece below. Wave a flag.
