Thursday Doors – October 29, 2015

Ghost Tours for Halloween

After seeing Cee’s Halloween Doors last week I really wanted to make time to get out to find and photograph a few of my own for this week.

Despite my good intentions I just wasn’t able to make it happen, so instead I offer you this door from Quebec City which is the entrance to a local walking tour company.

Ghost tours are not unusual; you’ll find them in many cities. They help bring local history to life and they’re certainly a novel way to attract curious tourists.

I suspect that with Halloween upcoming, these folks will be in for a very busy weekend.

Happy Halloween everyone!

    We have our own ghost near where I live, and a month long festival, https://coveyview.wordpress.com/2014/10/31/the-bells-witch/. I enjoy visits to places like Charlotte, NC, New Orleans, that show off their ghost and feature beautiful and unusual architecture such as the beautiful door featured in your blog.

  4. What an intriguing idea Norm, the ghost tour, Halloween isn’t that big over here, although it’s gradually creeping in amongst the kids, it’s All Souls Day tomorrow which is the big occasion. Either way I love your festive door and as we don’t generally get much snow I don’t mind seeing it! 🙂

    Compliments for the host of this challenge! And for sharing the view you give me on the places you visit. Always makes me wonder if I should not have moved over and join my relatives in London, Teeswater or Orrilia 🙂

  12. When we were in Gettysburg in September, we noticed they offered ghost tours at several sites. 🙂

    Ghost doors are very appropriate. I actually posted a gate. Happy Halloween!

    I love this photo. Once more your post reminds me of a wonderful experience from my past. When I was in Quebec about fifteen years ago, I took at least fifty photos of different doors. I had never done that before and I have not done it since, but the doors in Quebec were so fantastic. All these doors were pre-digital and I recently found them when I was cleaning up my spare room. I had totally forgotten about them.

  22. I’m fine with not having Halloween doors, Norm, especially as this is such a lovely door. Although we don’t have any snow (and none in the forecast), we have cold and lots of wind this morning, so it feels the way the surrounding area in your photo looks. 🙂

    This is a handsome door Norm. The snow is a not so welcome reminder of what season is in the on-deck circle but I like the picture a lot.

    This was a great dior joining in the Halloween fun, Norm! To me it’s color and berry wreath, could be Autumn bittersweet instead of holly berries. 🙂
    I think I somehow missed making last week’s rounds of Thursday Doors, Norm. Busy st work and little sputtering of effort after working 10 hour days. I will travel back in time to see last week’s posts. . .
