Today we went in search of artisan markets. Mentioned online and in the guide book and supposedly open year round all day we were disappointed with jean talon. Mostly empty and not in the nicest of areas it wasn’t worth the trip. We then continued our journey to Atwater market. This was a bit better but still underwhelming, perhaps we have been spoiled with borough market in London! It certainly let explain its popularity with tourists.

A maple leaf in all it’s autumn glory
Had to be done! 😂
Was hoping to spot a raccoon but this was as close to that as we trekked Mont Royal. It seemed happy enough to pose for a pic and was much larger then the squirrels back home.
Spotted an iridescent cloud today. Really strange but very pretty.
Beautiful colours for autumn.

It’s seems to be a trip of upgrades. On arrival at the hotel we were upgraded to a suite. No idea why but happy to accept!
Coming into land showed wide open spaces and beautiful autumnal colours. Couldn’t help but keep a look out for a polar bear or two but it’s a bit to early to find them at this time thanks to global warming
The food on board was great as was the service. Only 12 of us in our cabin and the extra perks made for a pleasant experience.
Enjoying the perks of upgrade on our flight out to Montreal.
