Thursday doors – Aug.3.17

Doors, EnbridgeDoors,Enbridge 2

These doors off Coventry on Belfast (Ottawa) have always caught my eye.  For years now I’ve told myself I’d stop and take a picture.. it is always too busy, it is just before a busy intersection.  On foot the other day… finally.. I walked the extra steps.. to capture them.

Have a wonderful day everyone.. thanks for stopping by.

lush vegetation – magic for Canada’s 150

The following pictures were taken by Dan Larouche, who graciously let me post them so that you all can enjoy a touch of our celebrations for Canada’s 150.

This display has had many  visitors over the last couple of months, if you can get to the Ottawa (Canada)

area, I think you will find a lot to enjoy. A photographer’s delight. (Jacques Cartier Park, on the Gatineau side of the river)

a spa day – really!

For real.  A special visit for 2 MapleLea dolls who got to visit an American Girl Salon at the AG Boutique at Chapters downtown Ottawa, right in the heart of the city. They were so thrilled..

First they got to pick their new hair styles, and then the colours of the bows they wanted.  There was even talk of nail polish for their nails, and having their ears done.  We did look at earrings, but when  roller skates were added to the want list.. it was agreed, we would come back on another day. I got to look around for new accessories for their wardrobes that to will wait for another day.

The staff is so courteous, and well-informed, they were able to answer all the questions, well most of them, the girls had about the history and back grounds for a couple of their friends.  Seeing where their friends came from was very exciting for them. they couldn’t stop talking about their experience all the way back home.

There was a lot of excitement and giggling when it came time for the young ladies to get ready for bed.  I somehow think it will take a wee bit of time to get them to settle down.

Being positive,  sharing a good experience with friends, is always a good way to create happy memories

Appreciation for the uniqueness in each of our friends will build a stronger relationship

Friendships are blessings in our lives.

Thursday doors – late

Couldn’t get any closer…the property was all fenced.  Isn’t this just a delightful scene.  Down the main road in a sleepy town on the outskirts of Ottawa.

HAPPY FRIDAY everyone

The sun is shining brightly, skies are blue  again today, Ottawa has had a whopper of a wet season… Time to fly under the clear skies … an adventure awaits.

 off in the distance

 silence beckons

if by chance

you are nearby

your spirit hears the call

and no matter

where you are

no matter the day or night

you are blessed

with a vision that goes

beyond

into eternity

pick a door, any door, they all lead somewhere

and some are already open.  Interesting that altho’ this door was open, and on a main street, I would not have just gone in.  Without knowing more about it, I would have knocked or taken a good look inside from the street, before entering..

Enjoy another Thursday, exploring  more doors.
