Love this photo Bits with the doors just open enough to get the water in the background, brilliant. D

Thanks Dianne ! Such a contrast between the estate this is part of, and the salt marshes off in the distance. But I could do with it being my backyard :)

Lovely contrasts between the bluestone wall and rustic gate and the welcoming scenery beyond.

Ireland is on the other side of the gate, innit?

Go through the gate and you hear the most beautiful female accents on the planet. Spend an hour there and then come back with an almighty hangover.

Well seen, and nicely caught, Bits. Your own door way to another world.

Thanks marbiz ! An excellent spot for a day trip about 45 minutes out of Boston!

And Thanks who and n1w ! Actually, through that gate is some durned excellent kayaking and New England salt marsh. Hang-over free! Get a buzz from just breathing the salt air.

Be careful Bitsy dont give too many of the good spots away, Marbiz might knock you over to get that perfect spot in Boston. D

LOL, Dianne - she only has a few days, so she can only get to a fraction of the great shots :)

She's fast.

Marbiz on August 12, 2009

Careful now! I've been watching!

Picking up some Bits and Pieces again. Nice gate with a wonderful view. Should label it Gatesthat would B nice. We started a topic on Gates in the Netherlands.

Greetings, Erik

LOL, Dianne and marbiz! I think I'll give marbiz a scavenger hunt list of Boston subjects to have to photograph when she's in town. Funny thing is: marbiz will probably go to many famous and well known sites that I've never gotten to - such is the fate of someone who grew up in a historic area.

Thanks Erik ! I did add the tag. Great to see you back after so long!

So right Bits if visitors come to Melbourne, they always go see things I have never been to, always the way. Cheers, D
