In spite of a little drizzle, the enthusiasm of Citroën Autoclub Canada participants in the Club’s fall outing to the Northumberland region of Ontario on September 28, 2019, was not diminished. In fact, the overcast skies and light fog provided for magical scenery and a rather pleasant drive.

In all we had, 2 DS, 2 Traction Avants, 2 2CVs an SM and a GS on the excursion with 2 of our Club members joining with their “regular cars”. In one Traction, belonging to Jeff Teerlinck, were his parents from Belgium, who were visiting him in Toronto for the week and came along to get a glimpse of the autumn leaves.

From our Richmond Hill start location, we travelled on country backroads all the way. No traffic and lovely rolling roads with some nice twisty sections let us enjoy the exceptional handing that our Citroëns provide.

Stops included the village of Bewdley on the south end of Rice Lake and the town of Warkworth nestled in the hills about 30 kms northeast of Coburg. From there, we drove back toward Port Hope, stopping to watch the massive upstream migration of Salmon and trout to spawn in the Ganaraska River.

The day was capped with some of us enjoying a great Thai dinner in Port Hope.
