Rue St. Paul – Saturday Night

A bit of a grainy set as there was too much close action for the tripod to be of much help. Still a good sense of a fun Saturday might out.

Le Plateau Montreal

The Watchful Eyes

On previous trips to Montreal, we’d always spent our time downtown or perhaps up on Mount Royal or along the canal path. Planning for our recent visit, I was reading about some of the neighborhoods in other parts of Montreal. The Plateau neighborhood seemed particularly intriguing being described by Wikipedia as “characterized by brightly coloured houses, cafés, book shops, and a laissez-faire attitude.” We were also given to understand that there is some amazing murals and other wall art. Off we went on a rainy Friday morning to explore.
