Start of the holiday proper for Hamish. It takes five hours to go from Toronto to Montréal by train. We thought VIA trains were pretty comfortable though the views along the way, apart from glimpses of Lake Ontario, weren't so exciting.  We stopped at places with names such as Kingston and Cornwall.  Alas, they looked nothing like their namesakes back in Blighty. The further away we got from Toronto, the thicker the snow covering was, which made it all look prettier.

Once we'd arrived and schlepped our cases to the hotel, had a quick walk around before meeting up with some friends.  The pavements were mostly cleared of snow, unlike in London, but we passed gardens and parks where the snow laid in pristine conditions.  It's been days since the snow fall and obviously the locals don't feel the need of walking in the stuff. Unlike some rather childish tourists from London....

The atmosphere in Montreal is a bit dry. Combining that with nylon bedspread in the hotel, the build up of static electricity meant we had a lightning show when we got into bed. It was "spectacular"...

Hallo!
And here the first roses, gardenias, jasmine, and hibiscus have bloomed! 20 degrees F or so above normal!
