Re: Skating on the Rideau Canal


I like the look... it would be a great winter shirt, but I don't think it really fits the theme. I don't think it screams Canada for many people

I like it. I think anyone who knows what the Rideau Canal is would think it's about Canada. It's winter themed, which of course makes it about Canada! I like the artwork. Very nice.

Wwithout the title, I would not know it had to do with the Rideau Canal. And to be truthful, except for the "eau" at the end of Rideau, I would not necessarily associate this with Canada. (It could also be associated with Louisiana, but not much outdoor skating happens on ice there.)

Since the people are skating with a bridge in the background, I can surmise that they are skating on a river or canal. Since most rivers in the US do not get cold enough to freeze over, this would be more likely to be Canada. Or the Netherlands.

I did look up the Rideau Canal, and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and also designated the world's largest Skating Rink. Thanks for posting this entry, or I may have never known this.
