Montreal summers never seem to last long enough and the winters never seem to end!
As I write this blog, i am sitting in the park waiting for my daughter’s hockey game to begin. Along with cooler nights and earlier sunsets, this is a sign that fall is around the corner.
I want to hold on to the long and somewhat carefree days of summer, so i am posting some of the highlights of my summer in Montreal to help us remember why we endure the winters. I hope you enjoy the journey to my happy places !!
We started the climb up Mont Tremblant as a group of eleven…..
But only the two of us made it to the top!
I play hard…but also know how to sit back and relax…
Dining options in our city are endless. We tried some new restaurants that don’t take reservations and didn’t even mind waiting for 30 minutes outside for our table.
BBQ ribs and mac and cheese seemed to be the winners this year! Last years top pick- The Philly cheese steaks served out of a hearse, were nowhere to be found!:(
And on a much smaller scale…a food truck we saw while in Vermont.
I always tend to drink and eat out more often in the summer…..so i also need to keep my body moving to maintain those habits and still fit into my bathing suit!
I biked, hiked, walked, kayaked and ran.
But the best activity was with my daughter… the color run. What a blast!!
For the first summer in many years, I didn’t get to the the ocean. Luckily for us Montrealers we have lots of natural beauty and bodies of water to enjoy less than one hour from our home. We are truly blessed!
Je t’aime Montreal!! <3
What is your happy place?
