Skating under blue skies
|Skating at Beaver Lake today|
If you're looking for picture postcard winter you don't have to go far in Montreal. We went up to Beaver Lake in Park Mount Royal on Christmas morning and skated as the snow fell. As if this wasn't romantic enough a horse drawn carriage appeared in the woods and as it moved closer we could hear a bell around the horse's neck ringing out to his sprightly pace. I felt as if Bob Cratchit was going to appear carrying Tiny Tim at any moment.
