A Walk To Silos #5 & Vieux-Port

silo 5 vieux montreal (1)Victor and I went on our first proper walk of Spring and visited Vieux-Port last weekend. I’ve taken so many photos of this area before but it’s just one of the most beautiful views you can get living in the downtown Montreal.   I love being near the harbour and having such a nice walk along the river accessible at any time. Something new, we noticed that the abandoned Silo #5 which usually has frequently patrol guards around it was mysteriously empty except a few locals that had gotten inside the fence. We decided to investigate further even though the sun was starting to set and the air was getting a bit chilly as it probably one of the few chances we will ever get. The hole in the fence was easy to find and there was an amazing metal statue constructed to one side of the building which just took my breath away (I love really rough metal statues that can almost be misconstrued as scrape). It was pretty neat just to view the underside of the lines that normally connect the factory to trains. The other side of the silos was not very interesting and the graffiti on it was pretty subpar so I didn’t take too many photos once inside the fance except of the lines. Victor also climbed up the wall of the factory and found a way to get in but because I’m still recovering and since Victor really wasn’t in the mood so we didn’t investigate further and try to get inside. Which is really too bad as I’d love to see the inside and I’m pretty sure the next time we go the security patrols will be back. I feel like climbing this summer – hopefully I get the chance. Here are my photos!
