Thursday Doors at the McMichael Art Gallery

….thanks to Dan from No Facilities for hosting Thursday Doors https://nofacilities.com/2021/09/23/superior-street-doors/

Today my daughter, Andrea and I drove to Kleinburg to visit the McMichael Canadian Collection of Art and the spectacular grounds that the gallery is built on. We lucked out with the weather and were able to walk around the property before we entered the gallery. Located on 100 acres of forested land along the Humber River, the McMichael is a major public gallery uniquely devoted to collecting the art of Canada.

Monday Windows and Thursday Doors – July 29, 2021

….thanks to Dan from No Facilities for hosting Thursday Doors and to Ludwig for hosting Monday Window https://mondaywindow.wordpress.com/2021/07/26/monday-window-july-26-2021/

Last week Kevin and I took a trip to Guelph to give our granddaughters a tour of the university where we met and went to school. The girls will be going there in the fall. We had a great day and hope to make many more trips in the next few years.

I focused on the older buildings because they have so much more charm and character. The residences that were once all male or all female are now co-ed. The girls are actually in their second year so they didn’t qualify to live on campus because the residences are for first year students only. Last year all their classes were on-line so they studied from home.

Thursday Doors – In the Town of Dundas, ON

Today my husband and I did one of our nature hikes outside of the city but the conditions were less than ideal. Although it was a beautiful, sunny and mild day the melting snow had turned to ice and walking was somewhat treacherous. After visiting a couple of waterfalls near Hamilton we decided to drive into Dundas and walk down the main street and take in the shops. Here are just a few of the interesting doors we observed on our stroll through town.

Spooky Doors in High Park

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2020/10/22/thursday-doors-october-22-2020/

Even during COVID people are decorating their homes and doors for Hallowe’en. As numbers rise in the city of Toronto there is an ever increasing risk that Trick or Treating will be discouraged. The residents in the High Park area, however, are not discouraged and continue to dig out their ghosts, goblins and other spooky characters to celebrate October 31st.

Thursday Doors – October 8, 2020

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors. https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2020/10/08/thursday-doors-october-8-2020/

Hamilton, ON is a university town. Around the campus and the McMaster Hospital is a neighbourhood of family homes and student housing known as Ainslie Wood and Westdale, adjacent to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It is especially beautiful and quaint this time of year because of the changing colours.

Thursday Doors – Sept. 26, 2019

…thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Walking through Long Branch (south west corner of Toronto) this week I came across a lot of new construction. Many of the older homes are being torn down and replaced with very modern designs. Not all of them are to my liking but some of them have very interesting doors. No two were alike.IMG-3724

Thursday Doors – More From London

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

All these doors are in the South Kensington area of London. The Queens Gate Lodge was owned by the Museum of Natural History and was built in 1883 to accommodate an engineer and messenger who worked at the museum. This tiny 2-bedroom house sits in Hyde Park just inside the Queen’s Gate and can be yours for a mere 6 706 000 pounds. When I first saw the sign at the gate to the house I actually thought that it belonged to the Queen. It wasn’t till I returned home and started to research the place that I discovered that the place was named after the famous gate that leads into the park and has nothing to do with Her Majesty.
