15 November 2009 | Mayo, Quebec
Fog and light rain, +4C
With less than a month left before our departure to the wonderful relaxed Bahamas, Louise and I decided to buy a farm.
It is only 30 minutes from Ottawa, on the way to our summer cottage, located just before the thriving metropolis of Mayo, Quebec (population 2).
The farmhouse features outdoor plumbing, outdoor electrical wiring, and no foundation..... a classic piece of Canadian history.... all original from late 1800's.
Work has begun, the building has been raised and a complete new footing and foundation will be poured this week. Our daughter Michelle has moved in with friends, and the plan is to completely renovate the house, barn, and outbuildings.
Goats, apple orchard, horses, chickens, dogs, cats.... good wine and good friends are planned.......never a dull moment!
It will be wonderful to walk the long beaches of the out islands!
