Hello my friends, it seems like I have been away for so very long.
What a fantastic time we had in Spain and Portugal, but I am so happy to be home!
It was wonderful spending time with our daughter, Kylee and her husband, Dustin. However, seventeen days away from my home and garden is a bit long for this gal.
I missed my family, and friends also. Can’t wait to start visiting and see what everyone has been up to.
Today I want to share with you the wonderful doors on the village farmhouses throughout the Camino de Santiago.
I have such a love for old doors. Each one is uniquely charming. I would have loved to have brought one home with me.
If you’re not familiar with the Camino let me give you a bit of history.
For a thousand years, pilgrims from all over the world have followed the footsteps of Saint James along an 800 km trail from San Jean Pied de Port France to Santiago de Compostela Spain, where his remains are believed to be buried.
This was taken from my daughters blog. http://www.ropesouls.blogspot.com/ Hop over to read her post.
There is a movie about this trek called, ‘The Way’.
We walked 110 km of the Camino (almost 70 miles) in 5 1/2 days. At times it was a bit hard, but I enjoyed it so much.
My favorite was when we were walking among the humble farmhouses along the way.
I can only fantasize about what is going on behind these doors.
You know I love this one with my lucky number 7.
I love this pic of Kylee and Dustin resting by this old door.
Each door is so uniquely precious. I think I am going to print a few and frame them. I’ll leave you with one of my favorites.
I loved each and every one of these doors. After 17 days away the best door I saw was the one when we pulled in to our own drive. There’s no place like home!
p.s. Hope to see you later today at my link party, Share Your Cup. It opens at 4 p.m. MST.
