My love of doors




Most of my friends are well aware of my love of unusual doors but this place goes far beyond the ones I have scrapped. This is the outside of Widdens Marina on Boca Grande. This is where the Tarpon contest with the huge prize purses traditionally start. Widdens has been in existence since 1926 and is on the historical record. It more resembles an antique or flea market than it does a marina although nautical items permeate the exterior and interior of the place. When you first arrive, you are greeted by the bleating of a baby goat and his/her brother/sister. Across from them dwells 2 pot belly pigs and their cage mates, the huge white ducks. There are also rabbits and other creatures in a sort of petting zoo. These are the places I love to photograph and then scrap. One of these photos will find its way onto paper and end up in my coffee table album of doors!

I have some doors for you from Provence and I keep forgeting to send them to you. Not the actual doors of course...that would have been awkward on the plane. Anyway, thanks for the reminder. I'll look them up and send you a CD.
