Fairy Doors

Not sure where the idea of fairy doors came from, but there are lots of them on Alameda. On Bay Farm Island, there are twenty-six, one for each letter of the alphabet, around the shoreline trail. Start just past the intersection of Adelphian Way and Sweet Way if you want to start at ‘A’.

We took scooters, but to be honest the path was a little too bumpy for them and in several places we just ended up walking them. It is a couple of miles from A to Z, the end being just before the bridge back to the main island, alongside the Harbor Bay Club fence.

We took an alternative route back, initially to check out another door (called Park Tree on the handy map you can find here). Zipping along the much smoother paths, past the school.

Now, even more than before, my daughter wants to put up some fairy doors. Time to fire up the 3D printer and make her some she can paint!
