We'll take a road trip this round.


The name "Espanola" has been attributed to a story which dates back to the mid 18th century. The story goes that a First Nations Ojibwa tribe of the area sent a raiding party a long distance to the south and brought back with them a white woman who spoke Spanish. The Spanish woman married a local Anishinaabe (First Nations) of a family living near the mouth of the river and taught her children to speak Spanish. Later, when the French voyageurs and coureurs des bois came upon the settlement and heard fragments of Spanish spoken by the local natives, they remarked "Espagnole", which had been later anglicized to "Espanola", and the river was named the Spanish River.


Death Valley CA

EVERGREEN Brickworks are a great place to visit in Toronto.
There are ENORMOUS murals 

Déjà Brew
A catchall for leftover beer, coffee, food, motels and whatever catches my fancy!

EAT 2020 Dundas West Toronto


  1. They had a midnight market at those brickworks. Interesting handcrafts et al.


  2. My son this Thanksgiving went canoe down Colorado river.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  3. ...the story of "ESPANOLA" is like the story of "The White of the Genesee" here.
    ...the ELEVATION of Death Valley CA is something that I have never seen.
    ...hopefully some day they will let me in to see the EVERGREEN Brickworks and the ENORMOUS murals.
    ...EAT is neat!
    Thanks Jackie for joining the party, take care.

  4. Jackie this is sooo very interesting. I like the thought of the brickworks. We had a brick factory too but it closed about the time growing up I could remember things like that. I remember its tall round brick chimney. I'd like to see one now.
    Good on Death Valley, I hadn't realized there would be a roadside entrance sigh.

  5. Murals and large "Eat sign are neat Jackie. Have a great week ahead
