My Secret Beaches Spot


I have always loved this old weathered arched wooden doorway.  It seems so magical and mysterious and makes me wonder about the “secret garden” that I imagine lies on the other side. I especially love it in summer when it becomes almost hidden by the tumble of foliage and flowers. Then it becomes even more “my secret spot”.    – Fran Battaglia
