Steckart Family In The Slammer

This is what the kids do to the driver when they've had enough...

Our diggs tonight is a family dorm room at the renovated Ottawa Prison, now a Youth Hostel.

Here the kids are standing in an actual cell. It was one cot wide.

A renovated stairwell that used to be wooden. I'm shooting this photo down the stairwell. Notice the grate? That was for suicide/murder prevention.

Should we leave them here?

Nah, they're hungry. We went into town, only about 4 blocks away and had some fabulous pizza. We walked through the open market. Hanging baskets for 5 bucks!

Gelato was yummy. Of course, kids always pick the messiest flavor, don't they? Notice the "No Loitering" sign?

Did I mention that this place sold Pez? I'm no Pez Geek, but this is the most Pez dispensers I have ever seen in one place!

Let's go back and have a drink in the basement bar.

  1. I don't know about the kids... but maybe Jamie? Just a thought. It looks like you guys are having a fantastic time. The boys and I are having a great time following your adventure. See you next week.
