Today I thought I would share a few pictures of Montreal. Hayley and I decided to spend the last day of my little visit in Montreal as it was only a two hour bus ride to this lovely Quebec city! Plus it was a great way to see the surrounding countryside away from the city. (Flat with lots of birch trees.)
This is main street in the heart of Montreal. Just seemed wrong to mix the two, old with new, but how else are you going to do it?
Yikes!! Doesn’t this remind you of a hamster cage with all the tunnels and wheels?! Montreal has SEVERAL of these underground malls…but we didn’t see a single Quilt Shop…much to Hayley’s relief!! :o))
Outside it was a lovely sunny day…and some of the leaves were still on the trees.
And I LOVED all the old brick buildings!
Rows and rows of quaint little shops and restaurants…
I LOVED old Montreal best! Hayley said that in the summer this huge square is a market place full of vendors. How fun would that be!
And I also loved the brick houses…something that you don’t see back home!
We walked for MILES and MILES…until the dogs were barking so loudly, that I was FORCED to buy a new pair of shoes! (Hey, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! :)
It was ALL good!! Including eating MY FIRST Beaver’s Tail! We shared this one…but next time we are having our own…It was THAT good! Think of a huge, flat doughnut covered with maple icing and drizzled with chocolate…delish! Diet-smiet, fat-smat… man, it was GOOD!
So I am leaving you now with thoughts of Beaver’s Tails dancing in your head…ENJOY!
Oh…and Au Revoir!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
