Old Montreal

Played tourist with Ben and decided to go to Old Montreal for a nice long walk! It's filled with tourists this time of the year but it was fun to play tourist in my city!!

Walking the old pavement!

Place Jacques Cartier - beautiful place surrounded by old buildings.



A little store where they sell Quebec Maple Syrup ... mmmm!

Bonsecours Market - a beautiful old place (1847) which now is the home of expensive boutiques.


Jacques Cartier Bridge and the Old Clock Tower - this bridge crosses to the South Shore. You can see La Ronde (under the bridge) which is a big amusement park.

A view from the Old Port of Downtown Montreal.
Another beautiful church - so many around the city!

Just gorgeous. That is the one thing I love about Qubec city when I went (a long time ago..hahaha) are all the cobble stone streets still intact. I really love your bridge shots too. Really great.
