More along the Lachine Canal
Saturday morning we got up, dusted off the bikes, pumped up the tires, fixed the bike chains and headed off to the Marche Atwater which is about 3 miles from out apartment along the Lachine Canal (see previous post for info on the Lachine Canal). Fantastic! Everyone was out biking, walking, jogging, rollerblading along the Canal. Perfect weather! The market was crammed full of berries and grapes, apples, flowering plants (including hibiscus which they must treat as an annual here unless they bring it inside for the winter!), cheeses, fresh meats and fish, and happy people happily shopping. We had something to drink and jerry had a snack of tomatos broncocini (fresh tomatoes with light pesto and mozzarello cheese) and a little chicken from Premiere Maison. Here are a couple of pics (for a full set of photos for the outing go to www.flickr.com/photos/abaesel/ - Montreal collection/Montreal Markets and Lachine Canal sets).
