Thursday Doors

The Peace Bridge, Derry City.

On a family visit to Northern Ireland over the holidays I noticed that quite a few doors were grey, matching the weather.

When night drew in, the grey sky turned to a deep blue as Derry City’s lights came on.

    Hi Jean. That deep blue sky is beautiful. I like how you describe the gray doors that match the weather. 🙂 We have a lot of gray here too. Snow, rain, wind. I’m ready for a tropical beach.
