This past weekend my mom and I participated in the annual Doors Open London event. It’s basically a weekend every September where a number of local landmarks and museums open their doors to the public free of charge. Many communities all over Ontario also host this event on various weekends throughout the year, collectively called Doors Open Ontario. I wanted participate last year, but couldn’t find anyone to go with me. I was glad my mom was able to do this with me this year!
I originally had a long list of sites I wanted to see (at least 10), but we only managed to see about five. It was so much more intensive and interesting than I expected it to be! We spent almost an hour at every site but one. Here are some of the highlights:
Eldon House marked the end of our Doors Open activities. It was starting to look like it was going to storm and we decided we should probably catch the bus back to my place and try to beat the rain and catch the bus back to my place. It was a great day all around, and would you believe it? It never rained here! Ah well, looking forward to seeing more next year!
