After a few glorious days in Montreal, we came back to the city and continued our vacation. It’s fun to play tourist in your own city. We hit a Jays game, went to Canada’s Wonderland, ate delicious food at St. Lawrence Market, and discovered some amazing beaches just outside of the city – one was Bluffer’s Park Beach at the foot of the Scarborough Bluffs – which is a sight not to be missed. It’s a little far east, but worth the trek at least once this summer. It’s extremely sandy, the water is safe to swim in, and the backdrop of huge cliffs makes you feel worlds away from the city. The other beach was Humber Bay Shores along the Lakeshore path. Cross the white bridge and keep riding your bike about 10 minutes west until you find a rock that says ‘reconciliation.’ It’s an incredible spot that feels like cottage country. The water is crystal clear and amazing. Both spots are great alternatives to the island and the beaches.
Amazing shot my friend took – the sky was purple!
