You only live once, right? Or more correctly, you only die once! You actually live every single day. Which is what you're supposed to do anyhow. So we're making the most of it, and when the opportunity arose to plunge off a 200 ft high platform attached to a giant rubber band, we signed up.
This event takes place today at 3:00pm, so be sure to read about our adventure with Great Canadian Bungee tomorrow morning! Should be lots of neat pictures, and maybe we'll try and get a video as well.
Keeping busy enough here in the village of Galetta, Ont. about 45 minutes west of Ottawa. Had a day of rain earlier in the week, so spent a lot of time planning our trip to New York City in early November. Other than that, taking the dogs for walks in the area.
There's an old lead mine in the area. Kingdon Mines operated on a large scale between 1914 and 1931. It is estimated that the mine produced over 60 million pounds of lead. All that's left of the whole operation is the tailings.
The tailings from the old lead mine. Looks like snow on the ground!

Lots of stuff planned over the next three days! It's supposed to be beautiful weather so we're going to spend a lot of time just wandering downtown Ottawa. But we're also doing some tours, including the Ottawa Haunted Walk Crime and Jail tour. Plus, we're going to see the hilarious Aaron Berg at Yuk Yuks Comedy Club Ottawa Elgin.
Should be a great three days, plus we're staying at the Ottawa Marriott right downtown so we'll be able to park the little blue car and explore downtown as a typical tourist. Really looking forward to showing you Canada's capital!
