Long Weekend in Abitibi-Temiscamingue

Friday was a local Cree holiday, the James Bay Agreement Day. I took the day to drive down to Val D’Or, get my winter tires on and meet my family in Rouyn. We went sightseeing on Saturday.

Here’s a silly shot of my sister and I just outside the historic site of the Dumulon General Store. It is one of my favourite tourist stops in the area – the building is about 90 years old – and you can flip through copies of old Eaton’s catalogues, as well as see old products and artifacts inside:

We were only able to spend two nights and one full day together. They took off this morning after breakfast. Not a lot of time to spend together, but precious nonetheless!
