More Doors from Ile D’Orleans, Québec

First a brief note: It seems that my comments are once again landing in some people’s spam filters. This time it is sporadic and only seems to be happening with certain blogs. So, if you have been posting regularly for Thursday Doors and have not seen a comment from me, please check your spam folder 😦

And now to the fun stuff.

Last week I showed you some doors on a network of quaint little chapels on Ile D’Orleans just east of Québec City.

This week I thought I’d share some of the other doors I found on that island.

There was this old stone church in the town of Saint Pétronille that had some lovely doors on it.

And this lovely little poem painted into their parking lot pavement that sums up the peaceful feel of the island quite nicely

The island comes, the island goes

with the tides

a constant wink to the universe

I think I took this next one more for the beautiful back yard view of the river but the garage doors are nice too.

This one was found out in front of an actual pottery barn.

Again with sweeping back yard views of the river…for these next two I was seriously considering walking up either driveway to go knock on the door and tell the owners to get the *(@! out of my new home 😉

You may just have to trust me on this one – there is a lovely door hidden somewhere in this mess.

And this adorable mailbox door was probably my favorite discovery of the day.

As always, thank you for visiting 🙂

    I thought for sure I commented on this beautiful stone church with brick or burgundy red doors. I liked particularly the arch over the top of the main set of doors.
    Bicycling throughout a quaint town must have been such a wonderful experience. The home with red doors and three dormers was really pretty, too.
    I apologise for missing or not posting my response to this one. . .
    I knew I couldn’t press like the day this came out so maybe the whole thing just did the go through. Thank you, Norm for the great, special doors here.

    Your photographs have a look about them that suggests it was a beautiful day while you were touring the island … and then I saw the photo of the garage with the river in the background and the laundry hanging on the line. That’s my favourite photo. It is so iconic of a beautiful summer day in a small town. I just want to walk into that scene.

    Oh yes, that’s just lovely all around, isn’t it? I am also a fan of kicking out the owners of the white cottage overlooking the water.
    And I love that mailbox! (With bonus gate!) 🙂

  10. The church is fabulous, but that stone house with the red window and door trim is really sweet! I’d want to live there too.

    These are just fabulous. Lovely mailbox door at the end…and the clothesline… I always love doors high up in a wall – this one looks like a house, not a barn so why would they put one high up on the outside? And the poem is just great!

      Thanks Susi. The elevated one is at the back of the church. Not sure what it leads to though. Yes that poem was great, and the tide was out when I arrived so it really hit home 🙂

    You had me at “old stone church” Norm. And then, the asymmetrical front door – painted RED – well, you weren’t giving a guy much of a chance, were you?

    The other doors and views are wonderful. I agree with you, thought, the mailbox takes the prize this week.

    Great tour. The island did well for you. Thanks for bringing us along.

    What a fabulous collection! I love the clothesline, not something you see often nowadays.

      Thanks Jackie. In rural areas folks do still love their clotheslines. Nothing make clothes smell cleaner/fresher than drying in a warm summer breeze 🙂

  21. What a quaint and restful place, Norm. I love the bit of verse, too. Sums up an island like that beautifully in just a few words. I love that backyard photo, with the washing on the line and the river in the background – makes me want to live there.

  22. Norm, if your new business venture doesn’t work out like you hope, I have an idea for you – tour guide in your wonderful country. 🙂 This is a beautiful collection of doors, big and small, colorful and subdued, and, oh, that lake view. 🙂
