    Ottawa River, ON - Patricia Barr

My Watermark is the Ottawa River, Ontario.

My family came here when I was 5 years old in 1972, and my father loved nature and the water very much. He bought an aluminium boat and took our family of six on the water to see the (Rideau) falls. We fished on the water, we learned to swim in the water, and this is my connection to the Ottawa River.
