This has got to be the prettiest library Pipkin's ever seen. The last two libraries he visited were the Portland Public Library, a modern block and glass structure in Portland's Old Port, and the Seattle Public Library in Seattle, WA, a glass and steel structure resembling a stack of books. The Library of Parliament was designed in the High Victorian Gothic Revival style, and with the snow decorating its roof and flying buttresses, Pipkin thinks the library looks like a giant, fancy cake. Mmmmm, books.
|What? We're not catching snowflakes here?|
Thank goodness for the Centennial Flame. Pipkin's got his fur and his toque to keep him warm, but he loves the warmth from this fire in front of the Peace Tower. He hates to leave this bright spot on a grey day, but he's here on a mission, to say farewell to a beloved part of Parliament Hill. He's quite sure these buildings aren't going anywhere soon, so goodbye to them, for now.
