On the road again today to see Mum. It was cool but sunny when we left Trenton. First a stop just before getting on the highway. Mum had requested some corn. This farm stand is quite close to the highway 401 on-ramp. I love their old truck.
Everything looked so good. I brought the cooler so I purchased some corn for us too. I will be heading back tomorrow as the plums looked great. I want to make some plum platz.
This is one of the fields beside the store. These are newly planted apple trees with a field of sunflowers in the background.
So on the highway we go. It wasn't too busy yet at 9:30 but lots of trucks as always.
In the Fall this curve is just breathtaking with the maples changing colour. I will post a photo once the leaves start to change.
We could see clouds were building the further west we went.
Beautiful farm fields.
Lovely old farm.
It wouldn't be summer in Ontario without highway construction!
We pulled off in Cobourg for a quick look at the Thrift Store. I spied this great Cutlass.
Such a pretty old church.
More dark clouds the closer we got to Mums.
We had a lovely 3 hour visit. Mum loved her platz and zucchinni bread eating a piece of each right away!
We headed back to Trenton around 2:00. This smokestack has an interesting history. In the late 1960's Ontario Hydro bought 1200 acres in South Hope Township to build an oil-fired generating station. The Oil Crisis of the mid 1970's put a stop to the construction but not before most of the buildings and smokestack had been built. The plant never operated. OPG (formerly Ontario Hydro) still owns the site.
Lots of hay cut this week with the drier weather.
When I was a child I always thought these transmission towers look like a giant monster.
Not too far now. I see the maple tree in the top middle of the photo is starting to turn. I do love Fall but not quite yet.
I hope everyone had a good day. Take care.
