June 29 – Olympic Park, Botanical Gardens and Biodome – Montreal

We caught a mid-morning Metro to Olympic Park where both Debbie and I searched in vain for the cheering throngs as we stepped up on the platform.

In fact, there were no medals or bouquets of flowers for us!

Although slighted, we decided to visit the adjacent Botanical Gardens with its fountains

Chinese garden lakes,

cactus,

Crown Cactus

Golden Barrel Cactus

Dragon Flies,

leaves,

Begonia Rex

Persian Shield

Oyster Plant

gorgeous flowersAlways Afternoon Daylily

Captain Blood Daylily

Embreea Rodigasiana AM Orchid

Maid of Honor Hybrid Tea Rose

Menzle’s Larkspur

Scarlett Daylily

And enormous Koy.

From there it was a short 1.5 km (just under a mile for you metrically-challenged folks) … which in the 90o+ heat seemed like 5 miles … to the Biodome; four ecosystems (Tropical Rain Forest), Laurentian Maple Forest, Gulf of St. Lawrence and Sub-Polar) under one roof … where 4,500 animals from 230 different species and 750 plant types co-exist.

Capaybara

Whimbrel

Tortoise

Puffin

Scarlett Ibis

Northern Rockhopper Penguin

Golden Lion Tamarin

Otter

Lynx

just to name a few …

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you said.

    Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think
    about worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
