I liked the colorful simplicity of this door...
And the welcoming garland of cornstalks and gourds on this one.
This must be the original "door to nowhere"...it is stately and elegant, but opens onto...a roof.
Below it is a little shop surrounded by the textures and colors of the season.
We enjoyed our visit with the owner of this country store in Nottingham, NH...he shared much of its history with us while we were there. The original door is still in use and continues to function as the community bulletin board.
The old green door still holds its original mail slot...worn and rusty from years of use.
The Grange hall used to be the center of social life in many small New England towns. Most, like this one, are deserted now. I wonder how many town meetings this door opened onto over the years?
The curtains were still hanging in one window of this deserted house and the dooryard was overgrown...but its timelessness spoke to me somehow.
And, finally, tired and dirty after our last camping trip of the season, it was time to head home...
Where we were happy to see our own front door waiting to welcome us back.
