My sister and I did a day trip from North Hatley to Montreal. The first order of business when we got to Montreal was for me to go bike riding and while my sister went shopping. My ride was along the waterfront. I started where Avenue Atwater crosses over the old canal on the north/west side of St Laurence and headed north/east towards the Old Port of Montreal, going as far as the Clock Tower on the Clock Tower Pier. The following two pictures where taken from there.

After that, I back tracked a bit to the Pont de la Concorde bridge and crossed over to the Ile de Notre Dame, where I had a chance to ride my bike on the Formula 1 circuit in Montreal. I didn't quit get up to the speed that the Formula 1 cars go, but it was neat just the same to be able to ride the circuit.

On the way to the Pont de la Concorde bridge I passed by one of the few big ships in Montreal that day and the world famous Habitat '67 apartment complex.

By the time I got about 3/4 of the way around the Formula 1 circuit in Montreal, Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, it started to rain and that wasn't good because by this point in time I was miles from my Jeep. It looked like the rain was going to settle in for a while, so I started heading back towards my Jeep. By the time I got to the Port Champlain bridge it was puring, so I hung out there with a few other folks. The picture below shows how the visibility was obscured by the rain.

After about 20 minutes the rain let up quite a bit, so I got on my bike headed for my Jeep - in case it was only a temporary relief. Fortunately, by the time I got to the small bridge to the south/west of the Port Champlain bridge it cleared up completely. The storm had moved off to the south as show below.

By that time it was clear and sunny to the north as we see here in this shot of Nuns Island.

I crossed over Nuns Island and headed west far enough to see the rapids on the St Lawrence river before heading back to my Jeep.

Shortly after I got back to my Jeep, I met up with sister and we headed to Old Montreal where we spent the rest of the day. All of the remaining pictures on this page, except the last one, where taken in old Montreal. The first is another shot of the world famous Habitat '67 apartment complex.

This building is the Montreal Customs House made famous in the movie The Score.

This is the remains of the Montreal General Hospital built in 1693.

The following two pictures are just some buildings I thought were interesting.

Again, just a few more interesting sites one sees when wondering through old Montreal.

Note how the remains off an older building were preserved in the construction of the current building.
