The night was very quiet and I had a great sleep after breakfast I packed up lunch and lots of drinks and headed out for my day down town Montreal….it was only a 5 minute walk to
For $5.50 I get a return ticket and down I go
I got off the tube and started walking towards the old Port of Montreal and these are the views on the way!!
Reminds me of the streets of Mexico!!
The clock tower on the river!!
The views from the top of the tower..
There is a free weeks subscription to my blog for the first person to guess how many steps there were to the top of the Clock Tower!!!
I liked this next photo just an ordinary fire escape about 5 floors up…
This is the Basilica
a beautiful building that I would have liked to have seen inside but it is the first church on my travels that they wanted an entrance fee to get in…that goes against my principles so I did not go in.
These sunflowers were huge!!
I got back to Ramona around 4pm after a wonderful tour of the old city…..I was very impressed with the people I spoke to… all French Canadians who were friendly and helpful…I always started my question with a smile and Bonjour and sorry I do not speak French!!
The one thing I have to mention as it was so rampant was the incredible number of women who smoke…never seen so many puffing away quite amazing.
I am going to go back to the parking lot I was last night and post this then I am going to try and get out of the city and head towards Quebec I hope to take a smaller highway which runs by the river….
