Ever since fur traders posted themselves here in 1611, this two kilometer stretch along the St. Lawrence River has been an economic and social focal point in Montreal. While it may be over 400 years old, the waterfront has been refurbished and maintained, transforming it into a diverse and attractive area conductive to a multitude of activities such as biking, Segway-ing, pleasure boating, and romantic walking. The Old Port is home to the Montreal Science Centre, a new urban beach opened up in 2012, and Cirque du Soleil performs at Jacques Cartier Quay.

Yesterday, we just passed by the old port, did not go in to see it, thinking that there will be a whole morning today, and then leisurely stroll past. Today is Saturday, the pier and the souvenir shops, restaurants and bars on the street are all open. Except for a few people, it is uninhabited here, but it is because of this that the stacks can enjoy the whole morning's old harbor which belongs to us only. The gentle sea breeze slowly blows down the valley, the quiet air solidifies the time, the old snow-covered wharf is in front of us, behind which is a whole row of Victorian buildings, and the occasional spires behind them announce the city's modernity. When the whole picture is presented in front of you, I think there is no more pleasant place in the world than this. Of course, there are some natural scenery and human feelings, but such a natural combination is the most profound impression on me.
