They're doing it again — Hallmark is making a Christmas movie in Almonte: the third one in the past few years.
I have mentioned one in the past, and I have embedded a trailer for the second, Love on a Limb, below. I can probably find the full movie on YouTube, but it might be gone by the time I post this, so I'll resist the temptation.
Love on a Limb was based around the protagonist attempting to save the town's beloved oak tree. In real life, and I suppose in the movie, the tree was cut down.
This is of special interest to us and many others because it has been well climbed upon.
This is Jonathan on the very same tree, sometime before the film was shot.
Another one on that tree when he was even younger.
Of course, tree-climbing is not new to Jonathan. I could post many climbing pics, but here is perhaps the most recent one from last September: this one was taken at Blakeny Conservation area, just north of Almonte.
Back to the current filming, from which I managed to digress. It will be called A Christmas Festival of Ice. I have found a link to it on a local news site. As usual, the film will pretend that Almonte is an American town: in New England to be precise.
