My original plan was to drive to Montréal mid-afternoon, stopping occasionally to shop for clothes and shoes, and to take pictures along the route. Reality, on the other hand, deviated far from the plan. First, there was lots of rain, which made stopping for pictures nearly impossible. Then there was the heavy traffic, first from Pickering to Oshawa, then through Brockville, which made shopping shops also impossible, as I didn’t want to arrive in Montréal too late. I finally managed to outrun the rain when I passed through the town of Iroquois, at which point I was able to stop and have my pictures taken.
