|a door at Le Croisic|
The sturdy wooden door seen at Le Croisic, a small fishing village on the west coast of France, symbolizes the idea of a new chapter in the adventure.

Sometimes gates aren't always so precisely formed. They might be a group of trees, beyond which canopy the tower of the local cathedral rises... as on the Via del Ponterie, Verona.
