My most magnificent day in Montreal!!!!

Rather than write about the incredible day I had, here are some photos I took with my phone to share in the splendour of my day. It was full of amazing people and wonderful family; thanks to all who contributed!!!

First we shopped in preparation for our weekend cottage trip and suckled on some maple syrup on snow!

I then went to Mont Royal to find the beach courts. I asked a random athletic guy where the courts were and he asked me "are you Martin Reader"! Unreal!! Turns out he plays beach and knew who I was so we hung out and he took me there. A wonderful time as thousands of people chilled, drank, picnicked and played all kinds of sports.

At 8 we went for dinner and joined my wonderful cousin Isa and her husband Owuo's group K'lanna Vibes. Great atmosphere and an incredible show. We went all over the world in an hour and a bit as they took music from various locations and melded them into lovely harmonies.

I was accompanied by Tushare who is a good friend from the FIVB Montreal days. We went back to his girlfriend's place and drank some fine rum and then went out for some extra social bevies.

This is Kim and I enjoying the vibes at Baldwin Barmacy. I stole Tush's glasses as I love the thick black shades and had to steal a photo with them on!

Group shot as we enjoy some magnificent concoctions. I am drinking a Licci fruit martini, Tushare has a grapefruit belini and Kim is having a straight up gin martini! Amazing taste and strong stuff, totally worth going to this chic place.

No evening in Montreal is complete without a full serving of double cheese POUTINE!! This dish saved my life!!!

I love living my life off the seat of my pants and this trip has been a delightful example of it working out. Amazing to reconnect with family I haven't seen for ages, new family members and also friends I haven't seen for years.

    to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83
    views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  9. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless
    think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give
    your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
    Amazing blog!

  16. I'm new to developing internet sites and I was wondering if having your blog title relevant to your content really that important? I notice your title, "Blogger: Martin Reader " does seem to be spot on with what your website is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any assistance would be greatly valued.
