I’m back from another enjoyable week in southern California with daughter, son-in-law, and grandson-in-progress. 🙂 Wandering around Redondo Beach, I found a few doors to share today and they even fit with Jude’s Life in Colour theme this month: black/grey. I once again managed to visit during a week cool, mostly grey (totally unrelated to the challenge), weather, color courtesy of clouds and/or fog. Ah, well, it’s a nice change from sunshine all the time, isn’t it? Hmmmm. We can’t decide whether I bring the weather or they ask for it to discourage my visits. 🙂 I did manage to indulge in some amazing mochas and French pastries, so that may have made up for the weather. But the company was what I went for and that was as wonderful as ever. Now without further ado, on to the doors.

For all veterans in the U.S., happy Veteran’s Day and thank you for your service, past or present! ❤

  1. Glad you had a great time with your family Janet. Sorry about the weather 😀

  2. Sue says:

    Good you had time with family, Janet

  3. Nice, interesting doors. Grandson? Oh, I see Legos in your future and a lot of hugs and smiles. 🙂

    • We have an gigantic container filled with Legos and Duplos as well as some wooden toys and several boxes of children’s books, all saved from when our daughters were younger. 😉

    I’m glad you had a nice, albeit cloudy visit. The top set of double doors is interesting. I assume it’s the light that makes them appear to be different colors. The gate at the bottom had me wondering at first. I guess the metal is for strength but they didn’t want an open view. I hope everyone is well.

  5. Heyjude says:

    These are very substantial doors! Or gates! Very secure. I bet you loved the greyness, endless sunny days can become a bit monotonous I expect. 🖤

  6. Welcome back, Janet … and cheers to your unique collection.

    Trio of great doors

  8. I’m glad to hear you got to be with your people. Mine are far (that’s why I have mom in today’s door post). Your first two doors are marvellous and something I’d like to see on a daily basis.

    • I’m sorry your people aren’t close, Manja. My parents are about a 20-minute drive away from us and my brother and his family a little less. The daughter and son-in-law in California are about 6 1/2 hours away, but our younger daughter is in Philadelphia on the east coast, so we’re quite a distance from her now.

    I like what you shared here – there is a strength to these doors and maybe in a way it connects to the strength of those who served! ❤
    and you are so right about the weather not mattering if it is family you have gone to see – and glad your trip was awesome – family is such treasure

  10. Hammad Rais says:

    Glad to know that you enjoyed your trip. Lovely doors indeed 🙂

  11. Nice selection of doors. I hope you continue to enjoy your visit with your daughter and son-in-law and get a bit of sunshine before you leave.

    Rather formidable doors! They say “keep out” without the need for a sign.

    It’s nice to have wonderful weather, but even nicer to spend time with those we love. (K)

  13. Ally Bean says:

    The last doors are unique. Don’t know what to make of them.

  14. I’m glad you had some cool weather days. I like that door that is developing a nice turquoise patina. It must be copper non?

  15. Nice gathering of the doors in Redondo Beach! Haven’t been there in years but fog was common there while I was growing up around the corner in San Pedro.
