I <3 Montreal Theme Week: Ain't No Mountain High Enough

It's was M's greatest ambition to touch the Montreal cross (visible day and night from the summit of the Mountain). Somehow, it never occurred to her that it might be a) huge and b) fenced off. But that didn't take the edge off her pleasure at seeing it:

M actually took this photo...

It was quite a production getting from Westmount (last post) to the cross. Down one mountain we'd already climbed (natch) and up another. Fortunately we had this crazy, kind of fancy meal in a cafeteria, to sustain us. There's nothing like bunny-sized dessert to keep you going.

After the cross, we witnessed this truly awesome view:

All I can say is a) it's stunning and b) it really looks just like that.


  1. Nice view! I'm going to have to visit one of these days...

  2. This makes me want to go to Montreal. And your daughter is very pretty, she looks just like you :)

  3. Bunny-sized desserts are what fuels all of western civilisation. Long may they run!

  4. Great view, glad you had a great time. There is an award for you over at mine x

  5. You guys have the greatest adventures!

  6. Were you in town when they inaugurated the new area around Place des Arts with the fountains? I can't wait to see what it looks like as an ice rink.

  7. Wendy: You must. People often say it's like NY.

    Monkey: It is so cool. I'm just a good ambassador :-)

    Tea Lady: Why thank you. And really, go to MTL as soon as you can. You will love it.

    Kate: I know. It's awesome really.

    Skye: The dessert will live on in our memories. Till the next time we can order it :-)

    Fab: Thank you!!

    E: I know. It was rather adventuresome of us, even if we were in the same city we always visit :-)

    Raven: No, but I have to come back in the winter to check that out.
