oh, train!

a great day for an urban adventure...
taking the O-train!
we donned snowclothes, walked over the bridge to the station,
paid out $1.75 (kids under 11 ride free),
and waited very patiently.

 well, as patiently as possible.

 this urban commuter train runs north/south only five stops 
from our neighbourhood to a mall in ottawa-south.  
 that short trip includes views of ice waterfalls, a deep dark tunnel, 
a raging icy river, interesting university students, speedy trees and ducks.

 this particular trip also boasted snacks!
we enjoyed a few trips trips back and forth;
it is good to remember that sometimes 
the voyage itself can be a holiday.
