Oh, Montreal

Sheralyn - some guy - big John - Ebony
Repeat post of our [me and the fetching Mrs. Sheralyn B, along with our daughter Ebony and son-in-law, big John] trip to Montreal in the summer of 2013.

The fetching Mrs. B, our daughter Ebony, son-in-law John and I just returned from a grand time in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  Because a picture can paint a thousand words, and paint them probably better than I can put them on paper, errr on this blog post, I will let the video do most of the talking.

You will see pictures from our arrival at Le Crystal Hotel in Montreal, to scenes from the city and Old Montreal, and a "cruise" boat tour of Old Montreal and finishing with awesome pictures from the Montreal Botanical Gardens, "Jardin Botanique de Montreal".

           Mr. B aka "Tales" as the blessed husband
           Ebony B-R as the smart and fetching daughter
           John R as the hard working, handsome son-in-law
