l'orée [lau rhay] : the edge or threshold

à l'orée du bois : at the edge of the woods

Just around the corner from where we live, à l'orée du boisis a small square of ground with aging swings and dusty slides, an old playground charming in its wear and decline. It's a favorite spot for my boys, a place for their storied imaginations to roam as free and wild as the nearby woods...

  11. You know the equipment is old when it has any metal components... seems the new ones are all fiberglass or plastic, etc...

    Love those little feet and legs on the bridge. A not-so-hidden message there. :)
