For some, unexplained reason, when walking our dog we leave the house using the front door. One would call it “force of habit”.
On occasion, we leave by our back door that leads into a myriad of lanes built in the 1800s to deliver ice and coal to the Victorian houses that line the streets. It’s a delightful array scents for him!
The lanes are adjacent to Montreal’s best shopping (and tourist) area: Saint Catherine Street (rue Sainte-Catherine) – however; it trickles to an end within our neighbourhood. The street’s sole restaurant and coffee shop close at 3pm on Saturdays and are never open on a Sunday.
