Thursday Doors – Open

DSC_0076-2

We were exploring the south shore of Nova Scotia, looking for fishing villages and anything else that caught our attention. We couldn’t avoid paying attention to the massive traffic jam along the two-lane road going into LaHave. We thought all the people walking from all the cars lining both sides of the road were going to the bakery/eatery on the left – but we later found out the village was having their annual clam chowder lunch. We don’t fancy crowds so we drove on through.

We were driving back mid afternoon and most everyone had cleared out so we decided we would check out the bakery and see what they had for a late lunch. Besides the front looked so inviting with the red double doors with one open and the other with an open sign, the long line of Adirondack chairs in front of the windows, and flowers in boxes.

Walking through that door was one of the highlights of our trip. Oh, the aroma of baking bread, of freshly brewed coffee, and the tempting pastries on the table just inside the door. And the pizza being kept warm by the cash register, that we bought for our lunch eaten at the counter along the front windows.

And then as we walked down the back stairs to explore the gift shop with items from local artisans and a reading room/used book store, look what we found –

Here’s wishing for you to find lots of doors that are open and lead to such delicious finds. We bought several items for our evening snack and for future culinary delights. Pure ecstasy.

This post is in response to Norm’s very fun weekly feature for people who love doors to post and enjoy their favorite doors from around the world.

    • Thanks. I think it was the chairs that drew us to stop – although the letter b-a-k-e-r-y also tend to make our vehicle automatically break. 🙂

  1. I love those yellow chairs. And the past couple of years I’ve been thinking about visiting Nova Scotia… really don’t know why but the idea appeals to me…. maybe taking a photo of those chairs would be enough of a reason to go!

    • Especially if you went inside and also bought some of their bread. We have been to Nova Scotia several times and I’d go back in a heart-beat. You can check out more of my photos of the area if you click on Maritime Provinces on the right of my blog.
