It was a picture postcard day yesterday. Crystal clear and not too cold either, I dragged Serge over to the botanical gardens to go for a walk. The Olympic stadium is just across the street (the tallest inclined tower in the world). All the pics are clickable for screen filling versions.
In the warmer months, the gardens offer guided tours aboard the mini-train. Here you see the trains snowbound.
The place was crawling with squirrels. They kept popping their heads up to see if we were nut carriers. We weren't but I wish I had thought about it, I could have gotten to know them better like Elizabeth. I like to think of this shot as "squirrel spirit".
This little guy looked like he was posing for a winter calendar.
The forest without clothing.
I was happy as long as I was facing the sun.
After our walk, Serge said, "Okay, now we're going to Home Depot." Since he had purchased the wrong sized toilet seat, he wanted to return it for the right one. On our way there, we passed under the Jacques Cartier bridge. I always think it looks so flimsy, the scaffolding nature of the base of the bridge.
Across the street from Home Depot, there is a statue of Cyr. Cyr is some famous fighter up here. I cracked up when I saw the statue. It looks awfully phallic, don't you think?
When we got home, Serge went to work on the toilet. When he was finished, I came in to take a look. Here, you can have a look too. (Why do I look so haggard in the video and so fresh in the above picture? I mean the images are only a couple hours apart.) Serge is adorable, as usual.
