Ride Along the Lachine Canal with Alex

June 10, 2001

[Many items have been suppressed in this Lite Version]


Sunday, June 10, 2001: Afternoon Ride

I set off with Alex for an afternoon ride, leaving after church and lunch. We rode along the DeMaisonneuve Bike Path, and down the hill to join the path at St. Henri. From there we rode east towards the Des Seigneurs Locks and the Harbour End. My goal was to take pictures of the construction along the Canal. We went as far east as the Clock Tower before turning around to come home.
