I've been on two fall drives last week - one on Thursday with some girl friends and one on Saturday with Murray to visit my sister and her husband.
Today I'm sharing Thursday's drive with my friends.
We started in Fredericton and drove to Stanley through Tay Creek area, then on to Boiestown and Doaktown. The colours were just starting to peak and in some areas there was not much colour at all. It's been a late season for the leaves changing this year which is kind of nice as the long the leaves stay on the trees the prettier it is. We stopped for tea and a sweet treat at the only eatery in the small village of Stanley, a diner with fine home cooking. It was a cold and windy day so it was nice to have a break after getting out to view many pretty scenes on our route and getting lost at one point. :) We also stopped in Boisetown, Doaktown and Blissfield to shop and have a late lunch. Enjoy the photos.
A pretty Anglican church on the hill.
The highway and the Nashwaak River in Stanley.
This century home is the home to a lovely country/primitive style home decor shop called "Candle in the Window" in Boiestown. We all purchased something there! Their front porches were so beautifully decorated. I hope to get over for their Christmas Open House in November.
Beautiful Percheron horses in Carrolls Crossing.
This horse statue is in the farm yard across the road.
This little Anglican church will soon be torn down.
The swinging bridge in McNamee that joins Priceville seen on the other side of the Miramichi River. I shared photos of this bridge last year too.
The week before last this river was overflowing its banks after the huge rain we had. It was still high and flowing fast this day.
These are cottages for rent along the river. What a beautiful spot!
This driftwood tree is resting on the bridge abutment after the flood over a week ago.
Some late season salmon fishing going on that day.
We had a lovely day and enjoyed the beautiful scenery, stops at country style diners and some shopping. I'll be back in a couple days with another post. The colours changed quickly this week and are so gorgeous right now. Today's wind took a lot of leaves off though. Soon, the trees will be bare. :(
Thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment.
Have a beautiful day.
