Montreal - Cirque and Illuminations

Hello,  Well what a way to end our trip.  We started with a subway ride to the McCord Museum.  It was an interesting walk from the metro as some of the biggest downtown streets were closed.  It was leave your car at home day.  They put picnic tables, benches and grass on St Catherines and other big street.  It was incredible with the car noise gone.  We enjoyed it very much.

Then on to the McCord Museum at MaGill University.  The special exhibit was Cirque de Soleil costumes.  Spectacular.  The craftsmanship and quality was top notch.  There were also some permanent exhibits of Montreal such as how the city deals with all the snow in the winter.  Including clean up.  What a job.

Afterward we walked around town.  Did some shopping and then I was treated to a wonderful early evening dinner in Old Montreal.  It was at a beautiful Montreal Steakhouse.  We had a bottle of wine and lots of giggles.  After walking around the old streets we went back to Notra Dame for a Sound and Light show.  It was a showcase of how Norta Dame was made and highlights of the interior of this beautiful building.  A spectacular way to end the trip.  Thanks to Cheryl, Marie and Mom who made such a wonderful trip for me....
