Last Night in Cornwall, A turn of events and a lovely view!

It was time to make a decision.  Go to Montreal or do more exploring of Glengarry.  I was very tired and I really wanted to see as much of Glengarry as I could.  I had not been to the northeast part – Lochiel. 

So where was I going to stay this one night?  Well as I was driving back to Cornwall on Hwy #2 I came up to a motel right on the St. Lawrence River. 

The Monte Carlo Motel

It was the Monte Carlo Motel.  It is right there on Bryden Ave and Hwy#2.  I pulled in and the proprietor saw me and I was in luck.  She had a room for one night.  It is not a fancy motel but it is clean, tidy and the owner is very nice.  Most importantly it is right on the St. Lawrence. 

I unloaded my belongings and prepared to head out to Cornwall for this was the day that I was going to the Cornwall Room.  I posted about that before. 

So now I could tour more of Glengarry and head back to Ottawa in a more leisurely manner than I had planned. 

It meant I was not going to the Quebec Family History Society in Pointe-Claire and visiting the Archives Centre Montreal on 535 Viger Avenue East. http://www.banq.qc.ca/accueil/index.html 

I would have to figure something else out and be better prepared. 

Later on in the day I made my way past the Monte Carlo Motel along Hwy#2 to the Blue Anchor Lounge.  I had spotted it before and was curious.  It was a beautiful sunny day and the St. Lawrence was calling and so was my tummy.

I pulled into the parking lot on the side and saw the wonderful deck out back.  Perfect, absolutely perfect for sitting and having dinner, a glass of wine and enjoying the St. Lawrence.

I positioned myself under the eave of the deck and this is what I saw:

Along came a big ship and it made good time.

A boat is coming!

Closer yet…

Closer yet and moving fast

A happy end to a busy day.
