Montreal- Peak at the Old Port

Bonjour from Montreal in La Belle Province Quebec.  Quebec is Canada's French speaking province.  When you leave Ontario the signage turns immediately to French and French only, and the road rules change too, so you have to be aware.  We spent the afternoon in the Old Port, the oldest part of the city.  And the most beautiful.  The architecture is fabulous, quaint shops, the most amazing restaurants in the city and old world charm.
Gorgeous stone buildings.

Always street performers.
Cobbled streets.

Finally a moose they let me photograph.

  8. Thank you for the Peek !
    We used to live in NY and spent quite a lot of time in Montreal a few times a year. Summer or Fall, it was always wonderful.
    The restaurants, the old town, the people, I loved it.
    I wanted to live there but my husband convinced me that he was not walking the dog at night in a snow drift ..
    Your photos are wonderful ~

  9. Chania thank you for taking us on a virtual trip around Montreal. It looks awesome.
