I spent the week-end in Morro Bay, CA. and of course couldn’t help but notice a door or two. 🙂
The first door I encountered that I loved were the built-in sliding blind doors that covered our sliding glass doors in our room at Embarcadero Inn. I liked them so much I’m going to have them put on our sliding glass door when we replace the 5 doors we didn’t do in the remodel last year. That will be after we finish the new retaining walls, and planting in the backyard which is happening this week.
Anyway, here’s what those blinds look like. We had a view of the Harbor, but not Morro Rock.
Nº 495- I liked the waves etched in the glass on this door.
Nº 830- Sun~n~Buns Bakery’s side door +1- there were delicious odors wafting from this door. It was with great will-power that we walked by it without going in. We were saving our appetites for dinner.
Nº 1185- The Portal Window and flag drew me to this door, the menu drew us in for dinner. Great American Fish Co. We both had the Mesquite Grilled Talipia. It was so tender, and good I ate the whole filet!
I couldn’t pass up the doors on two boats docked in the harbor. Could you? 🙂
This first one I liked how weathered the door was, and I saw an abstract image in it. I wish I had my longer lens with me just then!
Papagallo II the yacht’s door struct me as being clean, classic, and the oak gave me the impression that it was sturdy and strong. Is she a yacht? I don’t know boats very well, but I know what I like! 🙂
There were two unusual homes that I came across while keeping an eye out for doors, although one is only a partial door I hope Norm, and the Door Purist forgive me for this entry, but I couldn’t resist.
The Windmill House: Was the home of Gladys Walton the silent film star. She added on the Windmill late in her life. She also built a Lighthouse house in Morro Bay, but I missed that one! She died in Morro Bay at the age of 90. You see, I could only see part of the upper door on the balcony, and the back door due to the fence.
Nº 1270- The Pueblo House- I thought this house was really out of place here at the coast, but perhaps not being California. While I was taking photos of the doors, and house the owner or resident came home. Thankfully, he was really nice and thought it was cool that I was taking photos of his doors. PHEW!
