Last week I was up in Northern Ontario building an entrance gate wall with pillars. We collected stones from a quarry near Spanish. A lot of people speak French there. No one spoke Spanish.
Huge piles of beautiful random shapes and sizes and colours of stone, before it all gets crushed into gravel, looks like this.
Many were very natural blocky shapes. There was lots of nice cornerstone granite material.
We spent the first day picking out some real beauties.
