My car was at the dealership for an oil change and tire rotation. Not wanting to waste a beautiful day by waiting inside the grungy old garage, I set out to walk the old section of Lachine. I crossed over a rickety wooden bridge spanning the Canal, traipsed through a bike path, and on to a grassy area lined with trees.
|After snapping a few pics, I turned my gaze upwards to catch branches from "my tree" reaching out to another tree as if holding hands across the sky - fingertips to fingertips!|
|Across the Lachine Canal, I spotted one of the domes of College Sainte-Anne, a private school founded in 1861 (yes I looked it up) by the Sisters of St. Anne.|
|I needed to move, so said "good-by" to My Tree, got up off the bench and continued on my way. What a strange looking building. Almost like a ship!|
|Nice architecture. Wonder who lives here.|
|And here - looks like a castle with its stone walls, tall windows and turrent!|
