for Six Word Saturday

I’m back from a week in Arizona of family time and looking at rental houses and areas (too early to rent yet but we need to get started), then a week of relaxation and family fun in Pasadena. I hope you enjoyed the two weeks of photos from “my” park, McDowell Forest Preserve in Naperville, Illinois. I do most of my walking in the park when I’m at home, but in Pasadena, I walked a lot back and forth between our daughter’s condo and Old Town Pasadena where I saw this power box a number of times. You get several doors for the price of one box.

I recently spent a long Memorial Day weekend in southern California (as well as Baja California), starting in Pasadena with our two daughters.  I love what this parking garage owner has done with the doors to the elevators!

First Baptist Church in Pasadena, California has been around sine 1903.  Its beauty drew me in, but the doors to the church were locked.  After ringing the bell and explaining to the secretary my desire to see the inside, she not only let me in, but told me all about the church.  There were a few lovely doors to be seen as well, although the bright California sun sometimes made it difficult to get a good shot.

One of the most disconcerting things about vacation is how quickly it seems that you never went. Taking photos helps bring back the vacation experience, so these doors transport me to one of my walks to Old Town Pasadena.  After my first day, I went online to locate somewhere to have tea or one of my periodic coffee drinks.  For the latter, I found Amara Chocolate and Coffee.

Mochas top the short list of coffee drinks I like.  At Amara, there are no mochas (by name), but their cacao latte raises the mocha bar moon-high.  Add 63% dark Venezuelan chocolate to coffee and milk and it’s sheer bliss!  I made a point of stopping there again on my last day.  They’ve officially spoiled me for all other mochas and I was happy to have had the opportunity to tell that to the owner.

With that delicious thought in mind, let’s head for the doors (and you can listen to The Doors as well, if you like.)  To see more of the doors (no caps), you can take a virtual trip around the world through the portal at Norm’s blog.  Be aware that the portal is disguised as a blue froggy-like creature.  Just click on it and the portal will open.  Just hang on to your drink!
