I hadn't been there in thirty years. Lots of passing by and through which if anyone has tried to drive somewhere by going through Montreal will know it is a difficult city to get by.
But the prices in Boston for accommodations for this weekend were way too much for us. We all enjoy Quebec City but we have been there quite a bit so Montreal was our fall back to Boston. We were not disappointed.
Our drive along the St. Lawrence was beyond describing. I couldn't get a photograph that would do it justice so these are not mine but they capture the scenery the whole way.
This was the city we spent our time exploring. So many people and so many stores to spend money in and so little time! We did our best to support the local economy.
A visit to what our hosts referred to as a small market "the Atwater" captured for me what the harvest season is all about and why we need to give thanks for living in the country that we do.
“Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.”
|This little fellow came home with me from the market. He brings a smile whenever I look at him.|
My life is truly blessed with the family I have and with the amazing country I get to live in.
