Pirates of Montreal

Montreal, Canada

Our day of sightseeing in Montreal. Most of the group went for some jet boating while Ross and I went to see what we could find around the harbour. We ended up stumbling upon an art exhibition of work by indigenous Canadians, as well as a pirate-themed restaurant that we thought looked like fun: we tipped off the rest of the group and we ended up booking a table for the evening.

We were hit by torrential rain but decided to carry on sightseeing regardless; luckily, the sun soon came out and we wandered the very French and atmospheric streets of Montreal, eating ice cream and watching a street performer climb a ladder made of knives while offending passers-by. We also tried maple lemonade served in classic American red plastic cups.

In the evening we returned to our pirate restaurant, which turned out to be a great find - not only was the food fantastic, we also had a pirate musician playing sea shanties and Irish folk music on the fiddle and banjo (with audience participation) and posed in the stocks with our pirate host.
