Google Image Search: Word & Picture #179

Today's Word:
Montreal

Today's Picture:

Hello loyal blog readers. Continuing with my "I Crushed My Digital Camera, Lost All My Digital Pictures of My Trip, Therefore Photoshopped Myself Into A Bunch Of Crap For Your Entertainment" segment, today's entry is: Montreal!

After Megan and I left Maine, we drove the rental car to Montreal. It was a beautiful and easy 5 hour drive from Maine to Montreal. The border crossing was very laid back. We showed our passports, they asked questions, we drove through.

Montreal is beautiful. Here is what some of my photos might have looked like had I not destroyed the digital camera. This is a picture of Megan and I jumping off a bridge in our wedding clothes:


We went for a boat ride on the St. Lawrence River in Montreal. Much like Louisville, Montreal became a city because of rapids just upstream on the St. Lawrence River. The current of the river is extremely fast. It is much faster and more dangerous than the Mississippi River. If I had taken an off-centered self portrait with my digital camera of Megan and I on the St. Lawrence picture, this is what it would have looked like:



Before I went to Montreal, all I knew about the city is that

  • they speak French
  • they used to have the Expos
  • they currently have the Montreal Canadians hockey team

This is what it would have looked like if I had a referee take a digital picture of me playing goalie for the Montreal Canadians:


Montreal was beautiful. We stayed in Old Montreal. There were narrow cobblestone streets, delicious restaurants and friendly people. I hope I get to go back some day... but only in the summer. It is damn cold in Montreal.

In Summary: Montreal is beautiful, I did a glove-save, Megan and I jump off bridges in our wedding clothes.

Thanks to the weight & camera-crushing-ability of the Chevy Tahoe, we will never know if these were better than the originals. How was the marathon?
