Places: Le Vieux-Port de Montréal, QC, Canada

Standard

Voilà!  Une vue du vieux port:

Here is a taste of the charming sights we took in on an evening promenade along the Old Port of Montreal.

Small confession:  I don’t know what this building is, but it’s pretty, isn’t it??  Can anyone enlighten me on what this lovely building is?

View of Old Montreal skyline:

Brrrrr…..

Ice skating!!!

Moi:

Le Vieux-Port de Montréal stretches for about two kilometres along the Saint Lawrence river in Old Montréal.  Old Montréal was originally used as a fur trading port in 1611.  It is now a historical tourist attraction featuring several events and activities throughout the year including the Montréal Science Center, the IMAX theater, and the Montreal Clock Tower, which was pictured above.  The riverfront offers a prime place for walking, cycling, roller-blading, quadricycle, pedalo and segway rentals.  As you can see, it is also a popular place to go ice skating in the winter.  We decided against getting on the ice, but we had fun watching others skate while we enjoyed the sights and sounds of the harbor.  Hope you enjoyed what we were able to capture!
