We're having a marvelous weekend. I think the last seventeen weekends were rainy. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating and it was more like seven. But still, it was getting to be a joke, rain all weekend and then a nice day on Wednesday while everyone is trapped at work. So what happens in Montreal on this first summerlike weekend of the year is that everyone goes outside. It's as though a giant hand is squeezing all the residences and OHMYGOD there are a lot of people in this city! It shocks me every year when I see this, and I think how vibrant it is, how Montreal comes alive again each year.
So we walked to the public market always walking in the alleys, spouse and my special thing we do, until we arrived where it looked like half the town had the same idea. Bought a tomato plant and a few herbs to plant in pots. We went home and went outside to plant the things.
Restless, we went for another very long walk with the dog, we just had to be outside, the sun was so glorious. On our long walk we discovered a cruisy park that we didn't know about. Suddenly we were amongst men in broad daylight "hanging out" in little alcoves in the bushes.
Then, unable to be inside, we went to the rooftop at Sky, one of the clubs in the gay village here. I love it on the roof up there, they have a pool and jacuzzi. There's food and libations and some of the finest specimens in the city. Plus lots of hunky tourists from the states. I know I need a better camera, but here's a video from the roof.
It's sunny, I'm going to rouse spouse soon and then we're off on a bikeride. I'll bring the regular camera this time.
