To commemorate this very important minute of this very important day I took a photo at exactly 11:11 a.m today. Here it is. Did you do the same? Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to see your photo!

If you happen to be in the Westboro area of Ottawa, there will be a Remembrance Day ceremony at the Westboro Cenotaph at 2:00 p.m. today. The Cenotaph is located between Richmond Rd. and Byron on the pedestrian pathway, just west of Golden Avenue.

Later: These were taken at the Westboro event ( click to enlarge):

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (17) and Sarah (15). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
