Our last day and evening in Old Montreal

Inside Notre Dame Basilica
Geneia and I spent our last day in Montreal visiting historical museums, the Chateau Ramezay and Pointe-de-Calliere, which takes one beneath Rue de la Commune to visit the oldest building foundations in Vieux Montreal.
A room from an 18th Century French Chateau, given to Chateau Ramezay.

Above I’m outside the Chateau. It was the 18th Century seat of Quebec’s Governeurs, once visited by Benjamin Franklin on a diplomatic mission. We went skating in the evening at a rink built on one of the quays thrusting into the St. Lawrence Seaway. We ended our evening with a glass of Pinot Noir in our room, next to our (electric) fire.
