Ruth: Our ride into Montreal was blissful after our previous day. Most of the route was on bike paths or bike lanes right into Montreal.  We are spending three nights with my cousins in Montreal West so we can look around and reconnect. They are both passionate about Montreal and history, so for our first day we requested a historical tour. 

We started the day at the local patisserie before heading off to see where the Brodie farm used to cut through what is now Montreal. 

In old Montreal we stepped out of the historical period briefly as Gord tried the zip line set up over the port. 
He came back with a gleam in his eye and a huge grin. 

Above is Louis Joseph Papineau’s house. He led the Lower Canada Rebelion in 1837. My family, of course, was firmly on the other side of the conflict.
