Our Last Day In Montreal

Monday July 26, 2010

We had one last thing to see, Olympic Park, built when the 1976 Summer Olympic Games were held in Montreal.  It still serves as a show place today. 

The landmark tower on the main stadium is 575 feet, is the world’s largest inclined tower.

The Olympic pools are located under the tower.  The second picture is now the Bio Dome.

The Upper pool and the Olympic village, where the athletes stayed.

It’s late and I need lunch.  We stopped at a small restaurant to eat.  We had heard so much about Poutine a French Canadian dish, Mike thought he would try it.  Everybody just raved about how good it was and how you would just love it.  Well it was okay, nothing that great.  We probably will never order it again, but glad we did.


French fries, gravy and mozzarella cheese curds.


We leave in the morning for Quebec city.
