How to Recognize the Doors Best Left Shut!

#NaBloPoMo Day 8 Girl’s Weekend Out #2

First Off, Signs Help!

Week 45: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Entrances or Doors

"Let's go down to the beach, girls"
“Let’s go down to the beach, girls”

I say “girl’s” rather loosely since last month I parked my car, and the attendant gave me a senior discount without asking. Yesterday was my official Medicare birthday. My health is now your business. 🙂 That’s the new door in my life.

Is it my age?
Is it my age?

We booked a home run-down beach cottage at the Tides Motel just a few steps from Pismo Beach. I should have taken pictures of the cottage doors, both front and rear. You could see out of them when they were closed, and they did not have windows!

One morning, two of us headed down to take a look at our beachfront property. Oops! The door was shut and padlocked. A clue?

Had someone SEEN us in bathing suits? Yikes!

The other side of the entrance.
The other side of the entrance.

It was like a horror film, or a bad dream, where you walk through the door into thin air. Only on the other side of this locked door were thin, rusted, metal stairs. We were glad there was NO access there when we saw the underpinnings of the path down to the beach. 🙂

What horrible entrances have you avoided? Unfortunately, you can’t avoid the entrance into Old Age, unless you don’t make it that far. So I prefer to think of it as Opportunity Age. 🙂

    • That’s what we thought, too. We did not try it. Can you imagine 4 slightly overweight, over sixty year-old women climbing over that fence and traipsing down the stairs? I would have need a videographer for that one!

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
