How lovely. I have imagined those places in my dreams.

beautiful...I think...when a person visits a different place...a different country particularly...a hidden part of herself gets revealed...I hear you sometimes find yourself in the places you go to...I sure would love to be somewhere else right now...lovely..

Howdy folks---so pleased yer liked the virtual tour.

Welcome Aging Woman--delighted to have ya visit. I hopes ya gets to yore dream places on day.

Luxlucisvita, I shur nuff' did fine a piece o' myself on that pilgriamge. Left a piece o' my heart too...meaning, it's bout time ter go back!! In fact...here is a funny idea: We'uns can all agree ter meet in Spain on a date..say may 3 2007...see who shows up!! Who ee--I'se always tryin' ter get folks to go see this speacial place , Roncevalles. You'll be changed too, I'll warrant!

Why hello Dawg--that kiddie-pie is sittin' on a big ole' canon aimed out over the sea--from days gone by when threats to the port were met with canon fire.

Whar does ya'll most want to return to--someplace not in dreams but already experienced and wantin' ter get back to?

Hello Aunty Belle . . . you lucky old thing - Barcelona is wonderful. I'm looking forward to your next post, here on the front porch where things are sunny and congenial. I’ve left you a reply – on my blog - spelling out a few things – I’ll warn you I got a bit carried away – but it got a few things off my chest. I’m trying to be forgiving and understanding in my old age! I haven’t seen GN for a while . . . . take care.
