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.
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)

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.

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.
can you feel the charm
and gracious facade
this entrance way. exudes
no pretensions here
just a warm welcome
encouraging one to stop awhile
veranda, door, and entrance way
hopefully brings a smile your way
we visit with Norm 2.0 today
Happy Happy day everyone!

off in the distance
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

Have a wonderful day! Oyashikiri
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.
Have a good day everyone! thinking of YOU…
