Posts Tagged ‘Redondo Beach’

On my Monday walk, you had a chance to see one of the multi-million houses we saw while out walking in Manhattan Beach, California. The area of Redondo Beach where our daughter and her husband live doesn’t operate on that scale even though the prices of homes in California will surprise you and not in a good way. But there are plenty of lovely homes that are on a more human scale. I spent some time walking around the neighborhood looking mostly for doors and flowers. Here are my first examples of the former.

Our Door Master these days, Dan Antion, hails from the Northeast where he’s retired but managing to keep busy in a variety of ways other than just hosting Thursday Doors. Head over to his blog to see doors from all over the world. You can get there by clicking on the highlighted link just above this paragraph.

Although the first several days of my southern California vacation were windy, cloudy, and a bit chilly, the sun finally came out, both in San Diego and in Redondo Beach and a good time was had by all. One of my daughter’s and my daily activities was taking a long walk, either by the beach or through neighborhoods with beautiful homes (and doors)…or both. We couldn’t see much of this house but they did have a lovely gate and some great planters and when there’s a four-lane road on the other side of the sidewalk, you want as much privacy as possible. Of course the other side, high above the beach and beach path, has a fantastic ocean view.

(Addendum: Due to traveling last Thursday, I forgot about the writing component of this week’s doors. Feel free to use any of these three doors as a writing prompt if you are so moved.)

If you have the money to have a home right at the edge of the hill overlooking the beach, you can also to afford enough vehicles to fill three garage spaces or perhaps you use one space for storage. But you definitely want your garage doors to match your gate.

Whatever vehicles went in those garage spots, this probably wasn’t one of them. I don’t think many people have a garage long enough for this classic beauty and certainly not with anything stored in front of it. We spotted this at the farmer’s market and it was in pristine condition.
