June 2 Forget SK

We pulled off the road, parked at the side of the road next to an abandoned barn and went straight to sleep. We woke up in a tiny place with the French pronounciation of Forjay....only 50 people live here now, but French nuns at the turn of the last century arrived and created a bi lingual boarding school....St Josephs Academy which housed 350 students and operated until 1964. The tiny village has some nice architechture, particularly the lovely church and rectory which is now a private home owned by a lady from Washington State. Property speculators are moving in, hoping to cash in on the areas booming oil industry.
