Tuesdays see me starting work at 7am. Luckily, I slept well on Monday night so I was in good shape for teaching. Often times I'm sleep deprived for this class because I stress about having to get up early and then I wake up in the night and can't go back to sleep.
Usually on my morning break on Tuesdays, I go down to the library. But since it was the 12th and a beautiful day, I took a walk around Old Montreal and the Old Port. I was surprised to see one of the locks drained. This is an old tugboat on display.
Looking north on McGill blvd. I love this city.
I had never seen a police boat here before. So festive, no? I would expect clowns to come off this boat. Of course the RCMP uniform is pretty clownish.
The new Cirque de Soleil shows are always trotted out here first. The new one is bug-centric and it's called OVO. We did not get tickets this year.
As I said it was a lovely day and here is a shot of the Bonsecours Market. Nowadays it's full of galleries and tourist shops.
The old world architecture of old Montreal.
Bixi is here! We now have a communal bicycle system around the city. You can pick up a bike and drop it off at another location. You pay an annual $78 membership and then every ride of 30 minutes or less is free. I haven't signed up yet, but I may.
Then I set up the classroom but had enough time to do the NY Times crossword. I can only reliably complete it on Mondays and Tuesdays. The rest of the week is usually too hard for me.
Then across town to my afternoon class. All the cherries and apples are in bloom all over the city. Then again, so are the dandelions.
After work, I headed down to the village to have a drink with friends. Here is the newly refurbished subway exit for the Beaudry metro station. Very Star Trek, no?
Finally, we had dinner with said friends. I think we overdid it on the wine because I'm still a bit wobbly this morning.
