I’m getting behind again, I can just feel it. So many photos, so little time. Let me try to give you the abbreviated version of what we saw in Montreal. You already saw two places in yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday; the Notre Dame church and the City Hall, both lit up during the night.
We enjoyed walking around the old city in the lovely warm night air, listening to musicians singing and playing instruments, the notes echoing from the beautiful buildings up into the starlit night.
As we wandered the narrow streets many restaurant and bar windows were open, the customers turning into advertisements for the fare inside.
Evening darkened the square in front of Notre Dame; a horse and buggy team stopped for a rest and a chat.
We had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant and I loved how the lights were glowing as we walked back out into the street.
Then we wandered down by the river, enjoying the lit buildings as we people watched the other tourists.
In the morning we walked one last time through the narrow streets. There weren’t so many people out and about as the night before.
We stopped to see the inside of the Notre Dame Church. It’s spectacular.
Then we headed over to the Biospehere, the old Expo 67 United States Pavalion which is now a museum discussing how humans have changed the world’s ecosystem.
It wasn’t all good news. There are several exhibits including one that snows and rains on you. Another one has designer clothes made out of material that had been headed for a landfill.
For all my dog friends, this dress was made out of what appear to be doggie bags…and not the kind you get at a restaurant. If you know what I mean.
But the best part about visiting the Biosphere was sitting out on the deck up top and looking at the Montreal skyline through the structure of the sphere.
The skyline was pretty….but soon enough we had to move on.
Gotta get some sleep. Tomorrow is Quebec.
