A Rope Fence…

…designed to keep tourists off the grass.

Skagway

Alaska

 

An educated guess tells me this fence

is in the vicinity of 40-50 years old.

 

A temporary fence to contain two young pups

after their trip to the vet. 

Maggie was quite disgusted at being

contained as well.

Looking Through-the Gate of Violence

An automatically opening/closing gateway

in Hamilton Gardens

New Zealand

 

 

Strainer posts support the fence tension

and often a gate as well.

Gateways like this one lead

to the various gardens in the

Hamilton (New Zealand) Gardens.

Any future visit to Canada would…

…have to include a morning at…

…the Butchart Sunken Gardens…

…on Vancouver Island.

A bit closer to home is…

…the Hamilton Gardens…

…in New Zealand’s North Island.

Archways in the centre of

Hamilton Botanical Gardens,

New Zealand.

Arch of Victory

spanning

Ballarat’s Avenue of Honour

The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being the first avenue of its kind in Australia (perhaps in the world) and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory and extends for approximately 22 kilometres.

Arc de Triomphe, in Paris

Finally, the…

…Arch in Ypres’

Menin Gate

in Belgium.

I had heard my Father talk of

Menin Gate all my life.

So my 2017 visit was a

truly moving experience,

to visit the battlefields

and pass along the same roads

as my Grandfather did,

during World War I,

all those years ago.

Certainly Australia’s best known arch.

Not sure how it rates on a world stage

although we are constantly told

it is recognised the world over.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk243-Portal

portal

a doorway, gate, or other entrance,
especially a large and imposing one

~~~~~

Upon entering the

Hamilton Botanic Gardens

in New Zealand’s North island…

…visitors have a two or three minute walk

before reaching central circular feature equipped…

…with archway portals into the

various other sections of the gardens.


Adjoining gardens are also equipped

with features…

…doors and archways…

…all of which have a short description

(foreground path left)

before entering the portal,

of what to expect in the new section.

Some portals are well gardarded.

Even on the return journey the guards

are rather imposing.

This was a fun portal.

The gates opened automatically. 

Children would love it.

a doorway, gate, or other entrance,

One of the portals between…

…different gardens at the

Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand.

I am told doors similar to these

featured in Narnia.
