Day 20

Wakefield (July 25, 2019)

Today we walked in Wakefield, a triangular neighborhood bounded by Nebraska and Connecticut Avenues and Van Ness Street and bisected by Reno Road. It’s a quiet neighborhood of unpretentious houses.

A typical Wakefield house

We decided to keep an eye out for blue doors, of which there were, surprisingly, many in the neighborhood. Here’s a few.

We loved this colorful house

And these stone and tile stairs

We made a mental note to return to Appleton Street in the Fall when the ginkgo streets that line it will make the whole street one bright yellow corridor.

Finally, for today, here’s another photo for our “flowers and fences” series.
