    1. Thank you Dan! Our life is so busy that it wasn’t till our son the day before congratulated us, and urging us to do “something!”
      I waited till today to reply, because your doors post is always a (good) trip:). Smiling how you introduced the owner of the Door’s challenge:) Just the title on the building Summer School reminded me on the many summers I WAS in school! Life is so easy now (haha). Great doors as always!

  1. Excellent photographs and the crepes look most Enjoyable.
    I love to be an independent traveller and have travelled to many coutries in Europe
    and Asia minor (Turkey). I have to say that Turkey is the most interesting country
    that we’ve visited. we’ve had 12 different trips there, each place unique in it’s own special
    way.
    Lovely read,
    Best wishes,
    Di,
    ABCW team.

      1. It’s not a secret:) This was the end of the 60ties when we fell in love. But in Holland there were still racial and socio-economic prejudices (nothing new, eh??) that people from different social classes and different races couldn’t mix in marriage. My parents were not at my wedding to drive that point home -it was their loss! They and my older friends/acquaintances loosened up later:):) And as an early twenty-something I had learned to fight for what I wanted – an experience for later on:)

      2. OH MY GOD! Classic love story! And, how sad is it that is 2017 and apparently the world hasn’t learned any better?!
        I’m all teary eyed. Sorry your parents missed your wedding – my maternal grandmother was absent from my mom’s wedding for the same reason!

        It’s beautiful to see your anniversary celebration, all these years later. May there be many more!

      3. For that reason I was determined to make it to my kids’ weddings (and I did, one more to go, and wish he would hurry op, lol) even if I would not agree with their choice. Thank you Narami for wishing us well:)

  3. Happy anniversary! It’s fun to see a photo of you and your husband. My husband and I got married 43 years ago in January, and I know what you mean — it’s so close to the holiday it tends to get overlooked. Glad you celebrated!

    1. You are pretty active (thinking how long you have been married, we are probably close in age). – especially that bike tour in Belgium:):) or, have you biked in the USA?

  4. I had great difficulty getting here from your comment on my recent photo, first link does not work! Unable to find the doors meme here you mentioned. Enjoyed a browse around lovely photos as always.

    1. Yeah, a rather plain door, because it’s in a hall with several other restaurants! But this place has the nicest interior (which does not come out on the photo at all – they have a lot of art work on the wall). and the food is good and comfortably priced. The Italian, across the hall, start their prices with $19 and up! thanks for coming by!
      Wow, many doors in old New Delhi.Thanks for capturing them for us here. Like the brown door with the lion as door knocker. And the bluish door looks Indian to me! A lot moor skill needed than the western oblong straight door openings!

  5. First and most importantly, happy anniversary! Lunch looks delicious and makes me think it’s been too long since I made crepes. Maybe for Valentine’s Day. I enjoyed the rest of the gallery as well, but I have to head off for work, so I must cut my comments short. Happy Thursday!

    1. Beautiful blue door Janet! Now I wish I were there to experience the mood of the street you described! Have to wait till the weather warms up more, to try out some of the suburbs of Sacramento during the day to have a comparable experience. Around here, even in Sacramento, streets are very quiet – no exuberant night life!
      Thank you for your congrats! These crepes are a meal, even filling enough for dinner. My, you must be very organized to be in blogland before going to work!

  6. Congratulations on your 45th wedding anniversary, Jesh. Neither of you look old enough to be married for that many years. Lovely photos you posted but the food ones have made me hungry, looks delicious. I can understand why you would love to paint old boats, they make such good subjects.

    1. Thank you Jean! I promised myself we’ll do a little bit more for our 50th:) That is, if I remember in time to invite friends:) Ah, this prison post I like the most, maybe because of the doors! What I like about the old doors is that they look much sturdier, and they have character!. Of course, to make them now that way would cost a fortune:)
      Wow, the these clocks are beautiful! They make for interesting shadows on the ceiling!

      1. We’ll see what we’ll do on that 50th anniversary…. Three years ago we made a trip through the gold rush area for our anniversary – 7 hours N. of where we lived, and ended up living there a year later, lol! (that’s where we live now)

      2. Tranquility – that’s why I’m so happy here living in the forest:) What a change with Los Angeles:) No inclination for the moon, lol.
        Why I told you about the gold rush trip, was because hubby and I travel on a whim (in Holland they plan their summer vacations/holidays in January. Our planning was withing a week).

    1. Thank you Manja for your congrats! Your post was incredible with all these gorgeous doors. The green door near the end caught my attention -so unusual! An your uncle – what a trooper, to accompany you on your doors’ hunt:):) Oh, but I think my favorite is the door with the lace work on top!
      Have you noticed many European doors are narrower than the ones in the USA?

      1. Hehe, thanks, Jesh. Well, uncle didn’t mind visit Siena one bit, doors or no doors. And Italians are still mostly smaller and narrower than me, I can only imagine how it was in the past. 😀

      2. True, people in the past were shorter in height – I remember at the Open air museum (which is about Dutch life in the past centuries) hubby had to bend every time he went through a door!

  7. Look what you’ve done now; you’ve got me searching the web for good local crepe restaurants because of the sudden craving I have 😉
    More importantly: Happy Anniversary to the wonderful couple! 45 is quite a milestone 😀

    1. These in Sacramento are awesome, especially their savory crepes. Even in the Los Angeles area we looked around when living there, but couldn’t find one near as good as this one…all that to say, you may have a hard time finding it:):)

  10. Wow, 45 years congrats ! That’s something to be proud of. Nice pictures!
    The restaurant (the food) reminded me of “The Magic Pan” in South Cost Plaza. I used to love going there in the 1970’s early 80’s. Remember that place ? It closed down years ago.
