A Visit to New Hope, Pennsylvania

First, let me say, I cannot believe that is has been almost three months since I have posted here, but a lot has been going on in my life. I am preparing for a trip to Ireland, Wales and London, so I have been busy getting a passport, making lists and shopping for items for the trip. 

Last Sunday we took a trip to New Hope, Pennsylvania. It was a nice day and we enjoyed ourselves. 
Our first stop was at the train station in New Hope.
Wow, I loved the train!
This was the first class coach.
Then we walked across the bridge to part of the main street, but we stopped long enough to take in the gorgeous view of a new Autumn. This is where the Bucks County Playhouse is located, and I have attended many plays there over the years, but for some obscure reason I did not photograph the playhouse, this is the veiw looking out on the other side of the bridge from the playhouse.
There were funny and original Halloween decorations in front of some of the shops.
They have actual gas burning street lamps!
We stopped and ate lunch at a Mexican restuarant, walked around some more. I just had to stop at the book store. Then we finally made our way back to the train station, where we parked.
They had this nice Autumn display on the platform. We had a very nice visit and the day was clear, sunny, and cool, a perfect day for our visit.
