For our first full day in Montréal, we met up with some friends who were visiting from Toronto. We enjoyed some yummy crêpes in Vieux-Montréal at a café called Muru, wandered around in Chinatown, explored  Musée des Beaux-Arts (which is free for the permanent exhibits) and then left our friends and had delicious salads for dinner at M Café.

Pretty little crêpe café in Vieux-Montréal: Muru.

Montréal pigeons look different from Victoria pigeons.

Macaroons in the display case at M Café. Mmmmmm.

After our walk, we jumped onto the bus which goes from near Montmorency Falls into downtown Quebec City. It was a pleasant ride through the small towns around QC. The bus dropped us almost at the gate to the old city. Vieux-Quebec is a UNESCO world heritage site. Here are the pics:

Mmmmmm, crepes for lunch. Mine had cheese and asparagus.

The restaurant in which we ate the crepes.

Looking down into the Quartier Petit Champlain: shops and restaurants in the gorgeous stone buildings. I was delighted (I know it’s early) to see that the Christmas decorations were going up. I didn’t think they would be yet and I’ve always wanted to visit Quebec at Christmas. More about that in the next post.

The Funicular moves people from the lower streets of the old city up to the board walk beside the Chateau.

I never tire of old churches.

No end to the beautiful views.

Looking up at the Chateau Frontenac as the light is fading.
