Blessing the Harleys

I saw something quite unusual this morning, the parking lot of the St-Joseph Oratory was absolutely packed with Harleys and other motocycles. A quick Google search told me that the event is called a Toy Run, or a blessing of the Harleys.

I would have gladly stopped to take pictures but I was coming back from a very fruitful visit of Mont Royal (more on that later) and my xD card was full. Hopefully they will still be around (and the clouds will be gone) in a few hours. By then I should have better light with the afternoon sun illuminating the church.

Darn! When I returned two hours later they were almost all gone. Talk about fleeting urban wildlife. I can’t really blame them, it’s a gorgeous day to be on the road.
