I’ve gotten quite the collection of doors from our recent wilderness adventures.
We all agreed we’d like to stay in one of these little cabins.
We all agreed the utter brownness of this building made us feel sad.
Is it autumn? It might be autumn.
It’s not a door, it’s almost a window — it’s a drinking fountain, a water fountain, or a bubbler if you will. I like it. I must include it.
Okay, so now we’ve reached the story time portion of my post. This. This is the old Peace Learning Center.
See how it’s all sad and dilapidated? Doesn’t it seem gloomy? Poor thing.
I mean, really. So sad. This building is all, “No one loves me anymore.” You know it’s bad when people throw orange cones at you.
But look at its door!
Ooh, I say, Ooh!
Copper and metalwork and true character!
The slate, and how!
No doubt the building is sad now. She knows she was once special. She remembers the children and their happiness. She remembers when she was power-washed and decorated with flowers.
People, it gets worse.
She’s been replaced.
This is the new Peace Learning Center.
Apart from the gabled roof, Bleh.
There is a lily pad pond, not exactly the height of lily pond time right now, so I’m reserving judgement on the lily pond. When the lily pads are most beautiful, I am usually still hiding in my air-conditioning, so what do I know?
As we walked around the new
monstrosity Peace Learning Center I cursed the lame-ass doors and hoped the front doors would be more interesting. Moo said she thought they’d be boring doors, The Mister said they’d be standard glass. I hoped and I hoped, but…
But not exactly a triumph in doors, are they?
Again, nice gable, Mr Roof, but what sad, sad doors. Tsk.
I can’t imagine what the new building cost, but I’m certain it was more than a rejuvenation of the former building. Tsk.
I was gonna get a photo of the doors to the boathouse, but…
I got caught up in the sheer cuteness of this little guy feeding the goose,
and then I stumbled across some fallen walnuts and well, that was a teachable moment, so no boathouse doors for you.
