In June I went for a walk.
I know, surprising.
The walk took me to the part of Appleton known as “The Flats.” The Flats is a well-known area that is home to industry, apartment buildings, eateries and two walking trails along the banks of the Fox River.
Neither stretch of trail is terribly long, but they offer scenic vistas of the river and a number of doors. Actually, it is only the Fox Trot Trail that contains any amount of doors. The Newberry trail, on the other hand, is a bit lacking in doors, unless you count the brew pub several feet from the east end of the trail.
This was my starting point – at Appleton Lock 3 and the door on the little blue shed.
On the first leg of the Fox Trot Trail, I immediately encountered doors.
The second leg travels past my favorite restaurant and down a small hill to the Fox River.
Next leg, along the river, has wonderful scenic views.
For the remainder of this walk, I found myself once again on a city street, admiring the view and the interesting doors.
So there you have it…a quick walk along the Fox River. Many interesting doors in a “flat” and very pretty place of the city. I hope you enjoyed the sights!
I’ve been remiss in participating in Thursday Doors. You know, the sensational weekly blogfest led by the incomparable Norm 2.0. My bad! I blame it on a lame horse and no time to take him to the farrier. Or something like that. If you are wondering what Thursday Doors is all about, click HERE to walk with Norm’s band of merry door stalkers. Door people travel up and down the river to find the biggest, best, prettiest and most delapidated doors of the world. Make sure you peruse Norm’s weekly offering and click on the blue froggie thing at the bottom of the post. That will take you to the heart of the door people and their doors!
