Eating Our Way Through Canada...

We discovered shortly after we got to our B and B in Montreal, that "The Village" was really another name for "The Gay Village." That was splendid. We loved the owners who catered after our every wish! The rooms in our B and B were all named after Hollywood themes and our theme was...


We were treated to four course breakfasts from a meat and cheese platter... a hot entree, to pastries to fruit!

We waddled out to the streets which were still decorated for Gay Pride Festival.

When we returned in the evening, we found a dazzling sculpture...

...lit up in French, that we think was about living our truth (help, Colette). You could speak into a microphone and it lit up the words you were saying, in French.
We don't speak French but we watched for a long, long time.

Later that evening, we dined on lamb shank...

...and a perfect creme brulee.

The salt woman and pepper man finally gave each other one last embrace...
...and we waddled home to bed. 


  1. That bed and breakfast suite looking like it was fit for a king and queen. Perfect for the two of you!

  2. We love to stay at B&B's, too. Always interesting people to meet and the hospitality is mostly first class. I think I've gained a few pounds just following you around and reading these posts.

  3. Sounds like you had the most wonderful time, Suz--and you deserve every single second of it!
    Love all the photos, too!

    Wishing you the loveliest weekend, dear friend...


  4. I've always wanted to stay in a B&B. The food you photographed looks amazing! Now I'm hungry...

    I'm glad you had a good time.

  6. You two look like you had the most fun...and the food looks amazing!

  12. Gimme that creme brulee!

    The sign literally says something along the lines of: There will be a place for every freedom that you want to give yourself.
    Which translates nicely into living our own truth. Well done, Suz!
