Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Design

thanks to Snow from The Snow Melts Somewhere for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday

Design is everywhere. We often travel far and wide to capture beautiful design elements in architecture when there are wonderful design elements right under our noses here at home.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Stairs or Steps

thanks Cee for hosting Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Stairs and steps. We see them everyday and usually take them for granted unless we have to climb up to get where we’re going.IMG-3002

Thursday Doors – Niagara Wineries

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Lunch, five wineries, tastings and great company. Today my daughter and daughter-in-law joined my husband and me and together we took a drive down to St. David’s in the Niagara region. I knew ahead of time that I wanted to take part in Norm’s door challenge so I packed my camera bag in search of some great doors and wine of course.

We started out at Ravine where we had a wonderful lunch first and then began our wine tasting adventure. All in all we went to five smaller wineries, tasted some fantastic wine and met some wonderful people who were very passionate about their products.IMG-1754
