A 70km walk
WhenI emigrate and arrived in Montreal, I had to go to an adress on saint catherine and didn’t pay attention to the east / west system. I ended walking a lot to arrive to the good adress. Even if I though at that time St Catherine was the longest street in Montreal, it is only 11 km, Sherbrooke is 32km and the longest one: boul Gouin 50km. But today it is a 70km that awaits me from the westernmost point to the easternermost one.
Before doing my dive, I realized I never walked along the southshore of the island and by walking I could take advantage of the slow pace to really enjoy all the variety of architecture, culture, people, wildlife and differents shores.
Instead of walking a park or a mountain, walking the south shore of the island was an enlightment. Next time, I will take 2 days to take more time to enjoy all of it and try to camp in the old port installation.
I am so happy to have meet all those people enjoying the river: boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle borads, surfers and people walking and ruinning like me today.
Of course the summer 2017 is now well known for its rain so I had all kind of weather including a nice storm.
