Wondering how we could fit in another road trip before we leave Montreal, the opportunity arose when we had to collect T's American-visa-up'd passport from Ottawa - the perfect excuse for a road trip!
(T is going to Florida for a couple of weeks through work, and needed an American visa.)
We woke up on Friday to snowflakes - huge, tennis ball size snowflakes. Not only that, but the forecast indicated freezing rain. We weren't planning on setting off straight away, luckily, as T had to do some work from home. Road reports said many roads were closed, and long queues were the norm for the majority of roads out of the city. We put off venturing out until 11am, but then had no choice but to set off - T needed his passport back by the next week.
Welcome to Ontario, home to nearly 40% of Canadians apparently, and where English is before French!
We also spotted BeaverTails - fried dough pastries shaped to resemble a beaver's tail, and topped with a choice of toppings such as jam, whipped cream and Nutella. Sold at various locations all over Canada, they are - somewhat randomly - opening a store in Japan soon!
Although very tempted, we gave them a miss. For now - there is of course, a few stores in Montreal which may just tempt us...
