If it’s Thursday, we must be in Montreal

We drove from Littleton in New Hampshire to Montreal in the morning and returned the same evening.  It was a long day of driving, and the weather did not cooperate, but we made it.

We covered about 8 miles on foot and spent most of our time walking.  We realized too late that we really needed a few days to do the city justice.  The Montreal Jazz festival  was actually underway, but we were unable to catch a performance.

And if it’s Friday….
