Cobourg

I took my time returning to Kingston from Guelph.   Going through Toronto is always a nightmare, and I’m not a big fan of highways, so I left the 401 at Port Hope.  I didn’t stop at Port Hope because I wanted to get to Cobourg for some lunch.  Maybe another time I’ll look around Port Hope.

The 401 in western Toronto, when we were slowed right down for a bit.

Victoria Hall, which is now a concert hall and art gallery.   I read the blurb about it, but I can’t remember what it said.  I think it was built about 1852.   It’s a very grand building for a small town.

I’ve seen these pianos around in other places, but never such a nicely decorated one!

Down by the Lake, which is only about 3 blocks from downtown, there are some very nice condo developments, walkways and parks.  I love these big planters!

I believe that Cobourg has become a big retirement center, because of it’s proximity to Toronto and lower prices, and I did see a lot of seniors about, but I think these two are probably younger locals.
