Note to self- find out when the fashion seasons change over and when the end of season sales occur. Montreal was a bit of a bust for shopping this past weekend. It was hot and for as far as the eye can see there were sweaters and pants for sale.
Don't get me wrong I love fall and winter fashion. I can't wait for the cool breeze of autume hitting my fashionably warm outfits of boots and scarves. But to wear those ensebles during an August humidity-wave is not my idea of fun. So I picked up a few things and focused on enjoying Montreal instead!
Our first stop was a Bixi Bike station. For $5 we had 24 hours of bike usage!
We rode to the eastern part of downtown to check out the "street art" at the Spray Painting Competition.
We found a cute city center garden. It was the perfect juxtaposition of urban surroundings and tranquil greenery.
On our way to dinner we took the scenic route along the water. I love this old flour factory (soon to be condos!).
Dinner was at a wonderful little Vegetarian/Vegan restaurant called Lola Rosa. It was the quintessential Montreal café. Great service, wonderful setting, amazing food and lovely company!
