A Little Bandit

Sorry for the photo error yesterday of our site. The correct one has now been uploaded.

Today it was mostly cloudy and a fair amount of wind for my walk. It was supposed to be mostly cloudy here today with a high of 12C (54F) with a chance of rain overnight.

We got a late start this morning but headed out to a Dodge dealer to see if we could get service done today. We’d already gone over our mileage so didn’t want to wait till our return to Ottawa next week. We got that done, drove around the south shore a bit, then came home as we were both tired and hungry.

After a nap and some food, we headed into Montreal and up to the observation area on Mont Royal. Unfortunately at that point it was too dark for my camera so I used Gordon’s Minolta to take some photos of some little bandits that we hanging around the observation area and looking for food in the garbage cans. Even with the Minolta, I couldn’t take photos of the Montreal city lights but I expect Gordon will post some. Below you will see one of the little bandits. Thanks to my husband for doing his magic on the photo. These little buggers are quick. I wanted to get a photo of him with his head sticking out of the garbage can but it was so dark that the camera was taking a long time to flash so we'll have to make do with this one.

It was a bit of a chore getting there with bumper to bumper traffic on Hwy 20 until we got through the tunnel that goes under the St. Lawrence River, then to find our way to Mont Royal. Montreal is a very big city! Then finding our way home in the dark was a bit of a challenge too! It had also started to sprinkle a bit on our way home but only for a short time on the north side of the river.
