Travel theme: Statues

My mind is wandering. I am ready for another travel adventure. Anywhere but here. Some place sunny.

St. Petersburg was quite lovely in September. My Russian colleagues thought I needed a heavier coat when it rained. The wet weather balanced out with the balmy last days of summer, melting into autumn.

I also enjoyed summer in Montreal.

Bonjour Montreal

BUFFALO – One more bite of Buffalo wings at the Anchorbar inside Buffalo International. We’re flying back to California. I can’t wait to pick up Daisy.

I enjoyed our New York and Canada trip. We spent a couple of days eating our way thru Montreal.
Montreal

  • We explored the Latin Quarter, Little Italy and Old Montreal.
  • We ate breakfast at Marche Jean-Talon. We did a picnic of oysters, samosas and cider next to the oyster counter at Boite Aux Huitres.
  • Breakfast at Montreal's Marche Jean-Talon

  • We took a boat tour of Old Montreal Port. Rocky waters on the St. Lawrence Seaway thrilled me.
  • We passed by closed boutiques and gay bars along Rue Sainte-Catherine.
  • I prayed a couple of Hail Marys at Basilica Norte-Dame.
  • We indulged in poutine in what some call “fast-food heaven” – La Banquise.

I wanted to stay in Montreal for another week. I loved it!
