A Long Walk
Although most of the rest of the country had the day off for La Fête Nationale, it was work as usual at Finite Wisdom's Canadian Headquarters, although in the spirit of the holiday, I did knock off an hour early. We had a light dinner on the back terrace and then went for a long walk. We explored the Jardin Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc Garden) and Avenue Cartier before heading back in the general direction of our flat.
Just three blocks from our flat, in a direction that we apparently hadn't explored yet, we stumbled upon the Grand Allée. As we quickly determined and Alison put to words, "The Grand Allée is the place to be." The outdoor restaurants are packed, the fancy cars are waiting to be valet parked, and the "beautiful people" are everywhere. Our plan is this: we will start on the end of the street closest to our flat and dine at each restaurant, in turn, working our way up the block. Since we'll walk over there and have no need for the valet, they'll never know that we drive a far-less-than-fancy Subaru. I'll even leave my Crocs at home and put on my big-boy shoes.
