Scenes from Montreal

With few signs of spring here in Newfoundland, and our vacation more than two weeks away, I’m getting a little restless for a change of climate and scenery. This morning found me looking back on photos from a different spring, of our May trip to Montreal five years ago. Won’t you come along and take in some sightseeing with me, in one of my favourite cities?

  1. Oh Jennifer – my old stomping grounds!! I love Montreal especially Vieux Montreal! I worked on Dorchester and Metcalf…I guess Dorchester is called Rue Rene Levesque now; not far from Old Montreal. I grew up and lived 18 miles away on the south shore across Pont Mercier in Chateauguay. It’s too bad Pauline Marois is such a hag and ruining what I believe to be the best city in Canada for tourists to visit; such a European feel – the rest of Canada is so America Lite in comparison. Thank you for reminding me of this beautiful city!

    1. You are so lucky to have lived nearby and worked there! I love Montreal and all of its culture, and would love to have a third visit. Paul and I adore the European atmosphere and architecture. And of course it has plenty of green space and trees. Oh I could go on and on! Do you get back there often?
      I’m not familiar with Marois; what is she doing to ruin the city?

    1. Pretty city, isn’t it? Of course I didn’t capture everything, like the Ronde (amusement park), or the underground shopping city, or the lively nightlife. Maybe next time, if I ever get back there. πŸ˜‰

  2. Jennifer, I agree that that statue of the three talking ladies is a keeper. Montreal sure is lovely. I like visiting any place that has old architecture and big beautiful trees and parks. My next desire would be to visit art galleries and antique stores.

  3. Your photography is always so exciting and vibrant! The colors you capture are beautiful πŸ™‚

    I’ve never been to Montreal, but have been to various other areas in Canada. After seeing these pictures, I’d love to travel there one day! The statue of the 3 ladies is too cute.
