The Union Buildings are the administrative headquarters of the government. The buildings were designed by Herbert Baker in 1910 and are constructed of colored sandstone and surrounded by beautiful gardens not to mention a spectacular view of the city. We had a nice relaxing picnic, enjoyed the scenery and took lots of pictures. Here are some of them. Everday vendors set up "shop" for tourists and visitors to purchase little African nic nacs. Ofcourse, the kids had ice cream too! Grandpa Miles.......we are not sure you can appreciate the views with our pictures since our camera is just a plain old point and shoot, but we were imagining you taking family photos in some of the prettiest spots with your professional camera.
