Today we went for a nice long drive up to the village of Foymount. Foymount is like the highest point in Southern Ontario or something like that! It was used as a radio base in WWII and for the last 15 years has been the main location for Blackwater sports wear. Blackwater was one of the first to design clothing with Gortex. They always had a huge sale in September that was a big draw for the sports crowd.
Well, Blackwater bit the dust a couple of weeks ago - their clothing line is now manufactured off shore - like everything else. Foymount is now often described as a modern day ghost town. Although, we saw plenty of signs of life as far as people living there. The old military barracks are pretty run down but the houses look lived in.
Obviously the views are absolutely incredible!! My camera certainly didn't do it justice - but I try! Leaving Foymount we headed up to Pembroke to pick up a couple of Christmas presents - never toooooo early to start shopping, y'know.
Jamie and his girlfriend Julie were up yesterday for dinner. Since they were having turkey at Julie's parents today, we opted for prime rib - which was okay - but not nearly as good as what you get in a restaurant. Still a nice dinner was had by all and always good to seem them.
It's been a really nice Thanksgiving weekend weather wise. I'm showing a couple of houses in Calabogie tomorrow - hopefully it will be sunny and warm again - maybe we ca even take the Pony!
