Ottawa Bike w/Figmas

With warmer weather comes a stream of pictures and videos! Finally got my bike repaired for this year’s Spring to fall season and some nice enough images to share with you all. I’ve also attempted to try and get my figma collection in some nice outdoor shots, hope they’re in good quality.

(Image heavy article.)

Also spotted the double decker – cropped image below – with only three operating within the city (from what I was told).

I’m still planning to do a Double Decker only article as it is still somewhat new and unique to the city of Ottawa. I may do the same with the O-Train or merge them both in one article.

Mud Lake:

Ya, I know that you shouldn’t be biking in Mud Lake. I saw the sign and was told off by a pair of bored individuals when I went in.

This is with a pancake lens! Tamed or wild bird? 0_o

*facepalms* – Oh look, a tamed squirrel.

Quick video showing the area and how tame these animals are becoming.

Eh? I would be worried about wild animals turning domestic with diseases then someone getting hurt in an accident. Think of the kids!

What are the chances of that? Three planes following one another. The passengers on board must have some nice images to share later.

Don’t worry, I walked my bike as I was supposed to!

The place with the nice waterfall and a Cherry Blossom (I think). Do correct me if I am wrong with the tree bit.

And another quick video, this time with a spring time version of Andrew Haydon Park. There are two cool attractions that I didn’t add as they were turned off till later.

It was so windy that Haruhi had to hold her skirt down.

Haruhi steals my tripod……

Video of  Dick bell Park/Nepean Yacht Club? I got videos but I think I’ll hold off on it till summer when the boats are roaming in packs.

Was near impossible to get the figma’s to stand in the windy weather, as mentioned above.

And then a “Slice of Life” video of the above I put together in the most unaltered manner I could get it in. I wanted to put it in a Vlog style but I’ll hold off on the actual talking until in Japan, I hope.

Thanks for viewing the article and hope I pleased both the Anime Otaku’s and the Ottawa lurkers with the media content in this article ^^.

    ah I wish the weather would clear up so I could get my bike fixed up and get back on it. I need to try and explore some new places this Spring/Summer. Interesting double decker bus, and that was one friendly squirrel.

    I find it amusing how we’re adding one another on every service site out there :P.

    Good luck with your weather ^^. Hope your bike gets fixed soon as well. Ya, interesting double decker…so elusive though. Friendly Squirrels? We overfeed our wildlife here because its fun for the kids lol.
