Variations on a Theme: Doors

cm-corning-bull-doorknocker_fotor

I am noticing that themes exist within the towns I have visited. Some are organized, like the Miles of Mules project, and others seem to be more of a neighborhood “thing,” like the mailboxes on a Key Largo street that were all fantastic!

After we left the Corning Museum of Glass, my husband and I decided to check out the town of Corning and maybe get an early dinner. As we walked up and down the downtown street I kept stopping to admire the front doors.

This is what I saw.

Variations on a Theme: Wine and Crackers and Benches (Oh My!)

Where can you go for an anniversary trip that you didn’t give yourself enough time to plan for: the Finger Lakes!

We live a few hours away from the area, we have never been there, and I enjoyed Sonoma when I visited our son. Reasons enough! (Also, it was fall, and we were able to get a hotel on short notice.)

We had a great trip and are looking forward to going again soon.

Here are some benches we noticed between wine tastings!
