Thursday Doors…stroll-by doors

Almost every day includes a walk with the grandson in a stroller, whether pushed by me or by his mom with me walking along. We like to walk either on the path along the beach or one above the beach along the street. I was frustrated the other day when I couldn’t get from the street to the upper walkway. We went down one path only to find four steps at the bottom, not anything I could get the stroller down and no one walking by offered to help. But I did find this door that I liked a lot so all was not lost…and we had an excellent walk anyway, just long than expected.

There really aren’t two sets of doors one above the other here, even though that’s how it appears.

The sun didn’t cooperate in this photo but you can still get a good idea what the door looks like and the attractive numbers of the address.

Some of you will be sad to learn that the yard with all the tiny houses/doors isn’t sporting any new ones. Dan, thanks for being the door-key-est host around (and I mean that in the nicest way possible.) Speaking of playing with words, anyone else doing either Wordle or Waffle? I finally gave in to my husband’s insistence that I’d like both and have been enjoying them, Wordle often and Waffle once a day, as that’s as soon as a new one arrives.

    What does your daughter say about you taking photos of doors all the time 😄
    Yes i play wordle and quordle everyday and send results to my daughter
    Wordle and a coffee is how I start my day

    Stroll by doors or as the police like to say, stalking 😂😂

    Haha – Thanks for labeling me as door-key, Janet. Somehow, I think it fits.

    Sorry your stroll was interrupted, but I’m glad you set the frustration aside to snag these photos.

    Four doors in one shot is a nice find! And waffle…need to look at this one, thx for mentioning.

    Great examples

    It does look like there are two doors there! I play wordle and qwordle but haven’t heard of waffle. Must research.

    That you didn’t get help from passersby, sounds like California! But it’s the same in the Netherlands, so I am uses to it. Sounds like a good and relaxed time with your daughter. Does she like this place better than the one before? I like beach streets:)

    • They like where they are because it’s near the beach and in a cute little area. Her husband likes to surf and his parents live about five minutes away. There were some things they like better in Pasadena but all in all, they really like where they are.

    Looks like a lovely walk. Love the wood doors. And I would mention that is not typical of all Californians to not help–it could just be due to some still trying to stay away from each other due to Covid. It happens. (I would have helped!) I’m off to play Wordle now actually…and going to research Waffle.

    • I know that not all Californians are like that and that it’s probably not even typical. I think you’ll enjoy Waffle. I see you have Sundevil in your email address. Does that indicate a current or former connection to Arizona or is it something else entirely? Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment.

        I am a sundevil! Got a bs in bio and a masters from them, and I taught bio there. My kids are both sundevils too. I’m from California but lived in AZ for 21 years. Super glad to be back in CA! 😎

      • We moved from the Midwest to Arizona a few years ago to be there for my parents. I’m visiting our daughter, husband, and new grandson in Redondo Beach right now. Not missing the 110+ AZ heat!

      • Dawn Palmer says:

        If I could live in Redondo, I would! It’s beautiful there. I’m a little inland, but definitely not like AZ weather. I don’t miss that! Also, I’d say that people from Midwest are way nicer. My son lives in Omaha now. Everyone is so nice there. 😎

      • I grew up in Omaha and went to school in Seward.

        Small world! 😎

  9. What a great opportunity to photograph doors, Janet. I really like these.

  10. What a bummer about the stairs. I remember having to find new routes for walking when I was pushing a stroller to avoid stairs.

    Word games. I haven’t played Wordle or Waffle but I do play Crossword Jam more than once a day. I’m addicted to that and a couple other games on my phone.

    I especially like that first wooden one, with the plain, rustic look.

    Janet, a delightful and cherished time with your grandson. I love your doors. There is a story behind everyone. Cheers Virginia

    Those daily walks with your grandson will instill a love of the outdoors in him – wonderful!

  14. memadtwo says:

    I like the geometry and the simplicity of these doors. I’ve always liked those half-circle windows. (K)

  15. Lovely that you can spend time with your grandson and get photos too! I play wordle and quordle everyday

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
