Laura's Vacation Pics

I went to Montreal over the break with Mike and another couple. Here are the pics...

  •  
    It was a 3 hour long flight from Orlando.
  •  
    I thought Canadian dollars were SO pretty and colorful. Our dollar was only 10 cents weaker than the Canadian dollar.
  •  
    Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal. It's a replica of the one in Paris and the same church where Celine Dion got married.
  •  
    The ceiling of the basilica.
  •  
    A beautifully carved staircase in the Notre Dame basilica.
  •  
    Rue Notre Dame. In 'Old Montreal', the heart of the city.
  •  
    Silliness!
  •  
    This is the hotel where we stayed "Le Place D'Armes"...I highly recommend!

    The snow was up to the bench!

    Behind us is the first Montreal Governor's home.
  •  
    We went to the 'Botanical Gardens' which is famous in Montreal. So many exotic plants in greenhouses.
  •  
  •  
  •  
    More botanical garden rooms.
  •  
    This was the 'tropical' room.
  •  
    Inside the greenhouse we felt like we were in Costa Rica...until we went outside in 5 degree weather!
  •  
    Us and the couple we went with...Wayne and Wendy.
  •  
    This is the top of Mont Royal.
  •  
    Friggin' freeeeeezing this day...especially on the top of the mountain.
  •  
    Fontaine parc...I think?

    Me and Wendy...a little 'warm and fuzzy' after a few.
  •  
    This is the Montreal 'dish'. It's called 'poutinne'. French fries, gravy and cheese curd. I was so grossed out! Not a fan.
  •  
    An unlikely sighting! My former Local 6 co-anchor, Erik Weber walked into the same bar!!!! How crazy is that?

    Fireworks show called 'fire and ice'...
