We've been staying in a beautiful, 19th century home that has been renovated into a Bed and Breakfast.
This is where breakfast is held every morning. How lucky are we?
We've been eating a lot of poutine*.
We went to Notre Dame Basilica, because it's one of those things you kind of have to do while in Montreal. And it's incredibly beautiful.
We visited the Redpath Museum of Natural History at McGill University, because my girlfriend is a saint.
They had a signed letter from Charles Darwin. I was so excited! (I'm such a geek.)
We visited Montreal's "Gay District" (complete with a sky full of pink balls).
We ate the best ever Montreal smoked meat.
And yes, we waited in that line to get it. And yes, it was totally worth it.
We biked along a very long river path until I found a cool old building to photograph.
Ooooh. (Aren't you glad I'm only sharing two of the many photos that I took of this building? You're welome.)
Did I mention poutine? This one also came with Montreal smoked meat. Can it get more awesome?
It's been a lovely week. There is so much more to say (Isn't there always?), but it will have to wait for a time when I'm not tired and my feet aren't killing me from walking on cobblestone.
*If you don't know what poutine is, you need to get your butt to Canada. It is the most awesome of all awesome things. Just be prepared for your butt to be much bigger when you leave.
