The other day, my friend Chelsea and I left busy Montreal on a mission to find the Montreal MegaReuse Center and some used furniture to repurpose. A few wrong turns, and some very confused pedestrians later, my SC-plated car pulled into the warehouse parking-lot, and we descended on the place like lions on a gazelle. Well, something like that anyway…

After we’d done as much damage as our wallets could handle, Chelsea and I decided to go exploring around quaint and quiet Lachine, QC. I quickly pulled up Yelp on my Android and noticed the presence of a Dairy Queen not too far down the road. We decided to head that way and then come up with our POA.

As it turns out, the Dairy Queen overlooked a rather charming pier, playing host to a number of characters – men fishing, kids walking their family dogs, a retired couple looking out over the canal, just enjoying the scenery. After a few minutes, we noticed a park across the canal and decided to go exploring. Turns out that park was Parc René Levesque – home to a number of sculptures, a tree museum, and the terminus of the over 85 km bike path from Montreal.

We found a number of interesting things in the park, including giant wire statues shaped like legs filled with huge stones, the “story rock” that described an alternate universe (the start of scientology?) a ton of trees, each with a little label and explanation, as well as a fairly puzzling sculpture garden reminiscent of Alice and Wonderland.

PS did I mention they call KFC “PFK” here? heh heh…
