Eh to Zed

For this round of the alphabet I am going to celebrate Canada's 150 birthday by showcasing towns across the county.
To date I've been in the Maritimes and Ontario with my letters. Now we've gone to Alberta in the west and back east to Quebec.

Starts with O

Oka Quebec

This area was first settled by French colonists as a mission to First Nations in 1721 by brothers of the Sulpician Order branch of the Roman Catholic Church. Early native inhabitants were Mohawk (Kanienkaha), Algonquin, and Nipissing, who had a village known as Kanesatake, now a reserve within the boundaries of Oka.

One attraction is the Abbey of Notre-Dame du Lac, famous for its Oka cheese produced by Trappists monks there.

September 017 - Climax Michigan

When Judge Caleb Eldred came to Climax in 1834, ending months of weary travels to find a farm site, the area was a vast prairie for miles in the newly-formed county. To get a better view, his son Dan climbed a tree and said, "this caps the climax of everything we saw." So they named the place Climax Prairie. Today, this historic and innovative village is just five minutes from Interstate 94, 15 minutes from Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.


  1. Climax no doubt gets a lot of double entendres.

  2. ...some interesting names this week, Jackie! The stone building is gorgeous.

  3. I like your town, Jackie. I also liked Climax, Georga, US. Every year they hold a "Swime Time Festival." Mostly pig related, our 43-year-old daughter at age five entered the greased pig contest. She didn't catch hers but she was trying to hold on to one.

  4. I buy a lot of that Oka cheese - it's yummy! I had never seen the building before - thanks for sharing that shot!
