We finally made it to Temiscaming, Quebec on Sunday where we had some authentic Quebecois poutine. Woohoo! I’ve been somewhere outside of Ontario! Of course I forgot to take a picture of the said poutine (I was too hungry) but trust me, it was yummy. It was supposed to take less than 2 hours to get there from Troy’s family cottage where we spent this past weekend, but of course we had to take the long way, i.e. North Bay – Mattawa – Temiscaming instead of the shorter North Bay – Temiscaming route. But had we taken the short way, we would’ve missed seeing Timber Lake.
The sign alone worth the extra hour drive. More pictures from the long weekend can be found here.
Did I mention that we went to 27 garage sales on Saturday? I kid you not. I got myself two cameras from the garage sales: a point-and-shoot 35mm camera that I got for free from some church in Sundridge (to be hacked into a pinhole camera, of course) and an antique Kodak Vigilant Junior Six-20 which I got for $5. I probably would have to wait until I have my own darkroom before I could use the latter, which may not happen in the near future, but whatever. It was a good value.
Well, I’ve got to go now. I’ve got so much to do today. But first of all, I need to shower and go get a haircut. I don’t know if I should go to First Choice again after the last hair disaster, but we’ll see. I think I saw a sign yesterday saying that First Choice Haircutters were having a 50% off promotion. If it’s true, I might have to go there. So I’m a cheapskate. Sue me. You won’t get much.
