Cee’s Which Way Challenge: 2 June 2017

Mijas Pueblo, Spain

covered walkway

This walkway in Mijas, in southern Spain, was a very shady spot in the heat of the day, which was full of plants and with steps leading down to another archway.  This archway was a shortcut out to the sunny street.  Mijas is built on the side of a hill and is full of interesting little laneways, and steps leading up and down to different places – and flowers everywhere.    The locals take pride in their village, and everywhere you go there are pots and hanging baskets, full of colour in the sunshine.

The big question of the day is – Which Way shall we go?

Thursday Doors : 18 May

We have just been on a short trip to the sunshine in southern Spain, the Costa del Sol, and here are a few of the doors we came across.  Most doors that we saw were very ornate, and a lot of them had these wrought iron doors outside the wooden doors, which means the building can be cooler in summer with the wooden door open.

Or how about these ones?

Tuesdays of Texture : Week 20

The craftmanship in this walkway is a very effective design,made with the smooth light and dark stones.   Lots of texture under your bare feet when you walk in the sun in sunny Marbella in Spain, and there’s even a leaf or two in the photo!   This was in a beautiful plaza, and look at the amazing tiled bench, just made for sitting on to watch the world go by!

And on to another Spanish village, this time Mijas, a traditional white village on the Costa del Sol, where we spotted this ceramic map of the world – such a clever idea!

Norm’s Thursday Doors :

My doors this week come from the fabulous Muckross House in Killarney, Co. Kerry.  This is a 19th century house built on the shores of the Lakes of Killarney, with magnificent gardens and old trees.   The house was built in 1839, and extensive work was done on the house and gardens in preparation for the visit of Queen Victoria in 1861 .

Muckross House, Killarney

This is the main entrance to the house, which is open to the public, and furnished in the original style – a very grand mansion, but probably not so grand for those living ‘downstairs’ and having to carry everything up two or three flights of stairs from the kitchens in the basement.

And these are some of the doors from the back of the house – probably a storeroom.

Servant’s Entrance?
