The Tour D'Ont.... And We're Off

Off we go into the great unknown…. Well, at least the not so well known, at least to us.  Our first stop was the booming metropolis of Markstay, formerly known as Prieur Central.  It was odd not to have people standing on their doorsteps waving at us - which is a memory we have from the days when we visited our relatives as kids.  Back then, we had no sooner turned the corner into Markstay when the grapevine announced our coming.  Auntie Bea would be outside, waiting for us.  The houses are still there, the old homestead is now a golf course.  Not much else has changed though.

 Our next stop was Deep River where we indulged in Mocha ice cream and Nui managed to score what is probably the most expensive bottle of vinegar in Ontario.  However, it's in a plastic bottle and she is content with the purchase.

 Off we then went to Pembroke and the 400th Anniversary of Samuel de Champlain.  We're not really sure what the festivities were going to be but it seemed to involve a lot of running.   It was a nice park and we were greeted this morning with a marathon race.  We were tempted to join, but we had to suck it up, suck it in, pull it out and head for Hawkesbury.
