Spanish Home

 
Posted by Picasa


Another re-created building at Mission San Luis. This is a Spanish home in the village. To the right of the building you can see a re-enactor dressed in typical clothes of the era. Click on the picture to enlarge it and see her better. I like her hat!

I hope they have a good a/c unit.

Hmm I thought that "woman"could be some visitor.
Imagine... They could be freezing during the winter inside this kind of house!
Wonderful picture,
Léia

This looks like such a neat place to visit. Love the thatched roof. And those trees just dripping with spanish moss. I like her hat too! Kathy

I like this series of photos.

Good luck with your son's wedding. It's a stressful time now, but when the big day is here you can relax and enjoy. Hope you'll have some pictures as well. :D

It is a good reminder of how primitive things were, not that long ago, compared to other places in the world.

Neat house, i like the roof (and the hat, too!)!

A great roof again and you have to enlarge it to appreciate the great work. And the hat!

The walls of the building reminds me of cement block but I suppose it is some kind of mud brick or adobe? I like the photo and find this series interesting.

Cohabitation these days is normal unlike when we were growing up. Patty and I would have been scared to death to rent a motel room anywhere for fear of being asked if we were married. People sometimes disowned their children if they did things like that. It was a different time.

That could also be a little thatched cottage in Ireland too; if everything was a little greener.

I love the thatched roof too.

This recreated mission looks like a wonderful place to visit. Nice series, Lois.

Thatch on the roof and thatch on her head! More or less.

Interesting building...I'd a thought it would have more windows, though. And one needs a hat just like that today, too, to protect from the Florida sun!

A handsome compact little building. I have always wondered just how those roofs worked especially in rainy climates.

I always think thatched houses look somehow animate - as though they might talk and breathe. This is a very interesting place; I'm enjoying looking round.

Very cool. Did you go inside?
