Classic Boats and the Old Port on a Rainy Day

Have spent much of this lazy, rainy Sunday in the apartment: cleaning, eating, napping, reading, and blogging.  But we did venture out for our daily walk into the gray drizzle of a Summer Sunday.  We walked down to the Lachine Locks where the Port was hosting a 3 day Classic Boat Festival which boasted a whole floating stable of classic boats from small wooden power boats to a tug or two.  There was music, food, a whole host of information booths on everything from the history of the Port of Montreal to cleverly decorated Boat Bags.  Here are a few pics from the day:  Enjoy!

Isn't it terrific to see all the old wooden ChrisCrafts so lovingly well maintained? There many hereabouts, as well as many other fine classic power boats. They are wonderful to see - still out on the water and being enjoyed by so many!
