AUTUMN LEAVES…….NEWCASTLE TO PORT HOPE

I realized Thursday afternoon that the autumn leaves were at their peak, or perhaps even past it. I decided to put the rest of the garden and yard clean-up on my “To Do” list, went inside to get my camera, and headed out to Lakeshore Road past our fields of corn awaiting harvesting (currently underway) for another driving adventure.

Since it was a weekday, and traffic was very light along this popular weekend route to Port Hope, I was able to make frequent stops by pulling over a bit to the side of this narrow scenic road. Crossing the tracks just east of Morgan’s Road, I stopped to get a shot of the railway
tracks after noticing that they led the viewer’s eyes right into the photo. Proceeding east, the road winds past lovely wooded areas, farmland and beautiful views of Lake Ontario. The deeply blue coloured water provided such a beautiful contrast to the orange and gold Fall leaves, I had to make many stops to admire and to take numerous photos along the way to Port Hope. Normally this ride would take about 25 minutes but with all the photo stops, I arrived in Port Hope in 45 minutes. If you’ve never visited Port Hope, keep it in mind as a great day trip any time of year.
There are restaurants, gift and book stores, a few clothing shops and a shop featuring iron works. My destination was Bibelot. This gift store sells lovely jewelry, soaps, candles, and other unique items including my own framed photo greeting cards. Ask to see them next time you are in Port Hope.
