Old Montreal was by far the best part of the trip aside from seeing Patrick Dempsey of course. I just love the old world feel of it. The cobble stone streets, the little cafes and shops not too mention they have the 18th century street market going on fully equipped with pirates. We ended up going to the Labyrinth which was actually for children but proved quite challenging and scary for 3 grown girls.
It was fun and entertaining, especially the French Pirate whom we could not understand. We were unsure what to do with the rest of our day and then it started raining so we headed back into the streets of old Montreal and found this little Maple Cafe. There we enjoyed some delicious maple coffee and baked goods. I then proceeded to see Mark Addy (The Full Monty) in the cafe. He sort of gave me a look that said "if you know who I am please don't make a scene". Although he isn't ultra famous he has still been in a good number of movies as well as having his own television series for a number of years. I didn't say anything because I wasn't sure at first but it was most definitely him. Who knew, you go to Montreal and that's where you see famous people.
Oh did I also mention how every male working in the service industry was model good looking? It was insane. Just though I would mention that as well.
Our last day in Montreal, we found ourselves at the Art Gallery and then back down into Old Montreal. We were able to visit the Notre Dame Cathedral. I'm not sure what it is but I love going into churches that are older and seeing the decor and art pieces present.
The next day we drove home. It was a long day and of course we hit traffic on the way back home through Toronto but it was a fun and interesting 4 days.
