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

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.

Thursday Doors – Sept.27, 2018

….thanks to Jolene for hosting Thursday Doors this week

After dropping my father off at Union Station this morning I went outside the train station to snap a few shots. The doors are from Union Station and the Royal York Hotel which is right across the street (first place where my Dad took a job when he first arrived in Canada in 1954).

My dad loves to tell the story of how he got off the train at Union Station and asked someone where he could get a job as a waiter. It was his first day in Canada. They pointed across the street and told him that the Royal York Hotel was the largest hotel in Toronto. He walked over, introduced himself and they hired him on the spot.

Thursday Doors – From the Car Window

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

On the way to the cottage last weekend there were sections of the road where I was literally at a standstill because of construction. Next to me I had my camera and every time I had to stop I rolled down the window and took photos of the countryside and small towns that I passed through.

This is on my way north from Toronto to Barrie along Hwy 27.

Thursday Doors – Montgomery Rd.

….thanks to Norm for hosting Thursday Doors

Since I started baking bread on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Montgomery’s Inn I often find myself walking home if I don’t have the car. On those days my husband drops me off in the morning and then I make my way back home on foot. It’s a long way so I usually phone my husband and have him pick me up at the half point point.

Whenever I do start walking home I pass some amazing and beautiful homes on Montgomery Rd.. Here are some of the more interesting doors.
