Doors 206 – More Bristol (and France) street art and graffiti doors

I have found myself, once again, with very little time to sort out Thursday doors this week, so I am rummaging around in my archives for some more street art/graffiti doors, all of which have appeared on Natural Adventures before in posts about street art. These doors were originally posted in February and March 2022, although the photographs range from April 2016 to March 2022. Enjoy.

I won’t be posting any doors next week as I will be enjoying the snow in France once again, but I will, of course, be thinking of you all. Have a fabulous weekend.

If you have made it this far, you probably like doors, and you really ought to take a look at the No Facilities blog by Dan Anton who has taken over the hosting of Thursday Doors from Norm 2.0 blog. Links to more doorscursions can be found in the comments section of Dan Anton’s Thursday Doors post.

Thursday Doors – 3 March 2022

Doors 175 – Mountain doors, Alpe d’Huez, February 2022 (2)

This is the second and final Thursday doors from a recent skiing trip to the French Alps. Not many doors in this post, but I was there to enjoy the skiing, the views and the company, doors I’m afraid were a bit of an afterthought (Thursday doors heresy?).

Still very busy at work, so this will be mercifully brief. Enjoy.

That’s it for this week. My thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, much else feels a little pointless at the moment, but I guess we must carry on.

Thursday doors – 24 February 2022

Doors 174 – Mountain doors, Alpe d’Huez, February 2022

I have been absent from the Thursday doors club so far this year, due to the pressure of work, but am missing it very much and so am squeezing this one in, just to let you know I haven’t completely disappeared off the face of the earth.

My wife and I were lucky enough to join some friends for a skiing holiday in early February, our first holiday abroad for three years, and first together without our children (almost 20 years). The trip had been jeopardised several times over by changes in COVID-19 rules around Europe and the UK, but we made it and had the most fabulous time in Alpe d’Huez, France. Great company, great snow and some of the best skiing I have ever done, despite having a knee injury.

Just one door for you today, but what a door! On one of the long green runs in Auris, heading to the Chalvet lift, we’re these two little green huts popping out of the snow. The huts are curious in themselves and posed loads of questions, mostly around what on earth these huts were for. I still haven’t worked that out yet. A lovely door on a lovely hut in a lovely location.

That just about wraps it up, and I hope I will have time to post more doors soon. I hope you all have a great weekend.
