Take a trip through the Secret Door
by Larry Geller
Thanks to a pointer from Research Buzz, I now have something to distract me from playing with my new smartphone. It’s a website called The Secret Door,
The Secret Door is presented by Safestyle UK
After going through the door, just click on the thingy at the upper left to move on to the next place, or stay and use the usual Google Maps navigation indicators to move around and explore the place where you are.

Unfortunately (for me) I just discovered that the website works perfectly well on my Samsung Galaxy S3. If you have a tablet, here’s a great way to while away the time waiting to testify at the Legislature, for example.
Someplace in the Secret Door collection is supposed to be an image Hanauma Bay, but I haven’t run into it yet.
P.S. While rebooting my desktop just now, I went through the door and found myself on a tour of the White House! Nice digs…
