What lies Beyond? (3)

As a child, I was always intrigued by what was inaccessible, unattainable, that which was just visible but not approachable…..and that probably has a lot to do with my love of the abandoned, derelict.

To this day, I want to know what’s beyond/inside.

A small sense of this came through the other day when I came across three different gates, leading to who knows where…

A lone white parasol stands visible beyond the overgrown path behind the gate.

…a patch of light visible at the end of the untidy path:

….another gate visible in the distance

Which one do you want to go down?

I did 2 posts with this title in 2015…and now this one.


  1. When I was young, gates and fences never stopped us exploring. We would just climb over them, and take our chances with what was beyond. From your selection, I think the middle one would definitely intrigue me now.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. They’re all intriguing. Maybe that first one – the parasol – what’s the story, I wonder?

  3. As a lad there was a high wall that I passed everyday on the way home from school. As I got older and taller I eventually managed to climb high enough to see what was on the other side…. Very disappointing 😊

  4. The third for me. It’s the only one that offers an invitation. 🙂 🙂

  5. Intriguing Sue, that parasol grabs my attention. Overgrown paths are always tantalisingly interesting. Calls to my gypsy spirit
