I spend a lot of time in the spring and summer sitting on a rock or leaning on a tree in a small park by the St Lawrence River across from Montreal. I can see glimpses of the Old Port of Montreal; I usually sit near a few fishermen…it is always more peaceful there.
I see the Champlain Bridge to my left (west side) and the Jacques Cartier Bridge to my right (east). Ducks following the current. And then you see it; the sun starts its magnificent performance like an artist with his paint brush. One huge canvas and the artist takes out his palette of colour, dipping in mauves, then pink and gradually the blues share space with the orange and yellows blending in their special shades of ochre.
