Almost back to our home port, Francois decided to treat us to a little stop over in the Old Port of Montreal.

The entry to the yacht club against the Courant Sainte-Marie brought back memories of last year’s trip along the East River (story here).  Apparently not too many sailboats frequent this part of the city because of the fierce strength of the current.  Not the time for an engine fail. But our mighty little R.E.D. was soon  parked safely amongst the big boats.  Very nice club though. A step or two up from the others with  welcome chocolates and fresh towels in the showers.  It’s the little things.

It’s not very often we get to play tourist in our own village so it was a treat to wonder through the Old Port.

Pints for the Thirsty Travellers

We spent the evening back onboard chatting with our boat neighbours who had passed us on the river.  Beautiful American Tug flying their Looper flag.  And what were the odds that two days later we would be docked next to them at the marina.  Great sharing stories and wish you a pleasant and safe finish to your epic Great American Loop trip Lila and Allen.

Now all tucked in  we can see the Clock Tower of the Old Port all beautifully lit with changing holographic images against the night sky.
