After my historic train travel experience on the Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield Steam Train I chose to explore the surrounding neighbourhood. The Gambling establishment du Lac Leamy, situated in Gatineau on the other side of the Ottawa River, is less than 5 minutes far from the train station and is one of the official areas for Ottawa’s popular Tulip Celebration and this year, it is the primary area for the World Flower Top that is being held in Ottawa.
The Casino de Lac Leamy is right next to the five-star Hilton Lac-Leamy Hotel, which offers a city resort experience 10 minutes from downtown Ottawa on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River. The hotel itself features 349 rooms, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a luxurious medical spa with 17 treatment rooms, a fitness centre and a game room, a range of conference rooms as well as a dining establishment with an outdoor patio area.
The Casino du Lac-Leamy is a routine main part of numerous Ottawa celebrations, and this year again it is a main area of Ottawa’s Tulip Festival. Much more special is that this year Ottawa is hosting the 23rd World Flower Top. This worldwide event is arranged by the World Flower Council, a company committed considering that 1983 to furthering the cause of world peace through the appeal of flowers and the sharing of knowledge amongst those who have actually chosen the flower industry as their career.
His dream ended up being fact in 1983 with the very first top meeting of the Pan Pacific Flower Culture Conference in Gifu, Japan. The conference was later relabelled The World Flower Council, and has since delighted in continuous development.
As you understand, Travel and Transitions commits itself to building bridges in between individuals from different places and to cultivating higher cross-cultural understanding and tolerance. So the concept of building peace through a joint love of flowers is intriguing to me and I enjoyed to see that this year Ottawa was selected as the place for the global conference of the World Flower Council.

Throughout the whole month of Might the Casino du Lac-Leamy has actually been become a center for floral displays. In addition, special gown designs are being included in the walkways between the Casino and the Hilton Hotel.
I took my time to explore the flower beauties outside the Gambling establishment and along with the ornamental screens inside the Gambling establishment and the adjoining pathways to the hotel which featured a variety of stunning exhibitions produced by gifted designers. The Casino du Lac-Leamy provided a terrific chance for a hobby professional photographer like me to attempt to record the beauty of the world of flowers.
