I like worn out old doors. Here are some barn doors that I found in my exploration of the Great Swamp of New Jersey. I bet you didn’t know we had a great swamp. It is prettier than the name suggests. I will definitely be going back.
To see more pictures of interesting doors check out Norm 2.0. I hope you find some beauty in your day.
This week I had appointments in NYC and in Hoboken, NJ. We got to the appointment in Hoboken really early. It is almost impossible to predict how long it will take to get to these appointments. Hoboken is the last stop before NYC and the traffic is quite impressive. The first time we came it took us an hour to go the last 4 miles. So we go early and have time to find interesting doors.
These are not traditional doors, but the view was spectacular. This is outside of River View park.
The view over a little bit of New Jersey and the Manhattan skyline was lovely in the fresh snow.

I’m getting trigger point injections every Thursday morning for 6 weeks to get ready for surgery. The doctor is in NYC during most of the week but she comes to Hoboken on Thursday so we get to avoid the tunnel traffic and more expensive parking on the other side of the Hudson River. Also, Hoboken is a very charming town. We haven’t explored a lot, but there are 2 interesting churches right by the office. This is one of them.

Here are some of my favorite doors from 2017.
This is one of my favorite door pictures of 2017 and it was taken on New Year’s Day. We went to the Shore for the day and drove home through Princeton. This building was on the way home. I love the architecture and the light and I love my husband for turning around and going back so I could get this picture.
This is one of the houses on the Jersey Shore. The photo is from New Year’s Day. We closed the year with a trip to the shore on Christmas Day. I will post pictures of the trip tomorrow, but there are no door pictures so you will have to come back and see what we saw.
I was going to add a tiled mosaic of the doors of churches of Morristown, NJ that I photographed last winter. However, I can’t seem to do that and I can’t figure out why. I tried to insert mosaics of my photos from our trip to the shore, but I wasn’t able to do that then either. Any ideas? They are visible at the end of the published post, but I can’t see them when I’m editing.
So here is my other favorite door from the Morristown churches. I really like the half open look.
These are the doors to the Baha’i’ House of Worship in Chicago, IL. We stopped there on the way back to WI for my mom’s 80th birthday.
This was from our April trip into Newark for the Cherry Blossom Festival. The building is the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
I love this door from the Gillette Castle, CT. This was on the way to Providence, RI and the Certified Zentangle Teacher Seminar. There were so many fantastic doors in Rhode Island you really should check out the original posts. (There are links to 4 different posts) But here is my quirky favorite ‘door’ photo from RI.
This is across the street from the park where I met Claudia McGill in 2016. The first step from this door is quite a doozy!
This door is from Columcille Megalith Park in Pennsylvania. I went there for the women’s retreat with my Unitarian Fellowship.
I didn’t have a lot of photos of doors from the second half of the year. I had increasing health problems that prevented me from getting out and getting pictures. The good news is that I feel like I have a really good plan to get started on the path to better health in 2018.
Here is my favorite door quote and it seems appropriate for a year in review blog post:
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
— J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1))
