I love fall-everything is brighter and crisper. No humidity. No mosquitoes. It makes me feel like actually DOING something. Not work. No. I mean fun things.
And there are a lot of choices. Hikes. Kayaking. Just a drive with a stop for a quick fall picnic.
This year, the leaves are a little late turning. But give it another week or so and everything will be gor-ge-ous.
So, here we go
Drive this Fall
If you are out for a Sunday drive, a beautiful spot -even without the reds and yellows of fall is the drive along White Rock Road in Kings County.
Grape vines line the southerly slopes of the hill and the Gaspereau River snakes though the valley at the bottom. There aren’t really good pull of spots along there so take care when getting out to get a photo. If you’re heading to Benjamin Bridge Winery,the driveway to winery is a great place to snap a picture .
How to get there.
At Exit 10 on Highway 101, and continue into the town of Wolfville. +Turn up Gaspereau Avenue ( across from Tim Horton’s ) and continue along that (about 3.5 km) until you see Gaspereau Vineyards on your right, Turn right there-you are on White Rock Road. Drive along about 8km, until just before the crossroads, you will see Ridge Rd on your right.Travel back east along that for more fall beauty and a stunning view of Port Williams , Greenwich and the Minas Basin.
Church Street, Port Williams to the Look Off

How to Get There:
Take Exit 11 and go down to the set of lights and go straight through them-after they turn green of course,that is Hwy 358. Once into the village of Port Williams, turn right on Church Street and just follow that around the loopuntil it connects back to Hwy 358, then head north to the Look Off
