I have a very busy few days ahead preparing for the big adventure. Heading out to the West coast next Thursday means I must get all my ducks in a row this weekend! Sadly I'm having to turn down invites to morning coffees at Starbucks, afternoon cups of tea, shopping excursions to the Vintage Village and SuzAnna's Antiques, or just hanging out somewhere relaxing and watching the leaves change color!
New readers may not know about the adventure on the horizon. Long time blog friends, and just about everyone I come in contact with in this large capital city, is
bored to death aware of my somewhat wild trip to the sub-Antarctic islands on an expedition ship. Hopefully YOU are not bored yet because I do want you come along with me.
As I'd no idea what to post today, my blogging brain is on overload with travel details, I just decided to add a few photos of beautiful doors..............before my own shuts fast behind me as I leave home.
All these lovelies were taken on my last two trips home to England. Some I've shared before. Cottage doorways are so inviting, you long for someone to open the door and invite you inside to look around..........................
............even the walls are waiting to be admired and captured by the lens..........English country walls of stone and slate are also home to ferns, vines, and tiny flowering plants that thrive in little soil, and a lot of rain!
Roses and doorways are a given - especially rambling varieties.
Although more gates than doors, these outdoor entrances along the cliff walk in my home town, beckon "come on in" and you know you would love to see the gardens and houses behind the walls!
Unusual church entry - perhaps I should be popping in here, kneeling down and asking that we will have a safe trip through those possibly rough seas!
Lock me up today, don't let me gallivant around town, I've so much to do behind my own door. Off now to check the 'to do' list which seems to grow daily and get crossed through slowly! I'll post again before leaving. Meanwhile dear blog friend, enjoy your Autumn weekend wherever you are.
