Scary Doors #ThursdayDoors

Here in Northern California we are just getting our electricity turned back on.  Since we were warned that the outage could last for several days and my devices are all old and in need to new batteries, I have basically been off-line since Saturday night.  I only turned on the EyePhone once every couple of hours for updates on the numerous fires in my area.  So for this week’s ThursdayDoors, Norm’s Frampton’s photo challenge which I truly enjoy and hate to miss out on, here are some scary doors from over the years!

Renwick Ruin,  Roosevelt Island, New York City.  For many emigrants, their only home in America if they were unfortunate enough to have contracted small pox. This place really gave me the willies.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt Monument, Washington DC.  Frightening because it could happen again.

Fort Sumter, South Carolina, where many soldiers were bombarded for days by their fellow countrymen.

Amtrak Tunnel.  Just spooky is all.  Happy Halloween everyone!

 

#ThursdayDoors: Mont St Michel

France2005 101I snapped this picture while climbing up to the abbey of Mont St Michel.  I believe the door was level and that I was on a steep staircase but I had drunken a quart of hard cider for lunch so anything is possible.

Mont St Michel is one of my favorite places in France although many people (hubby among them) feel it’s become just another typical tourist trap, cheap trinkets, over-priced food and crowded lookouts.

Harbor of Grand Camp Maisy

While in France we stayed in the small town of Grand Camp Maisy, a fishing village somewhat off the beaten path.

The Mont is over an hour’s drive from Grand Camp Maisy but it was well worth it!
