Half Moon Bay Park

Half Moon Bay Park is a park with a paved walkway around a lake.

The address is 3525 Cambrian Road, Nepean, Ontario. This is a suburb of Ottawa, about 30 minutes to the Southwest.

I have walked this cute park several times as it’s close to where I currently live.

It takes me less than 10 minutes to walk here, and the walk around the park takes about 18 minutes.

If I want more steps, I walk it one or two extra times.

I like the scenery here, even though it’s in the middle of a few giant subdivisions.

They have a big pavilion with picnic tables and a large play area for the kids.

They also have connecting trails into the different neighbourhoods.

I many couples, families and singles in the evenings and weekends here, enjoying the green space.

I’ve even seen people carrying bird seed down to feed the ducks in the pond.

I give this park a 4/5. If you live in this neighbourhood, it’s a wonderful place to walk. It makes you feel like you’re not in the city at all!

Tutti Frutti Breakfast and Lunch

One of the things I wanted to do and never did while I was housesitting was review places to eat, and hiking trails.

Well, it’s a bit too late for that, but I can do the same thing where I live now, in the Ottawa area.

This morning, I felt a bit of a nudge to go check out this breakfast and lunch place called Tutti Frutti. I don’t eat out often, but when I do, I prefer breakfast foods, or Pad Thai.

I had the Western Omelet with red peppers, onions and tomatoes. They didn’t have gluten free bread, so I asked for no bread. It came with thin oval shaped potatoes and two slices of tomato. (Sorry, no picture.)

The meal cost me $22 with taxes and 20% tip. Not a super cheap place, but I left pleasantly satisfied. They do have $10 omelets on Wednesdays, at least at this location in Barrhaven: 4335 Strandherd Dr, Barrhaven, ON K2J 6E5

I used the bathroom here and it was nice and clean. They have several individual bathrooms.

I liked the decor and the wait staff was pleasant.

This location is open from 7 am until 2 pm daily. Find their website here.

I give this restaurant a 4/5 stars.
