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.
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.
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 happy end to a busy day.
