I thought ‘d join in this week with some pictures of doors seen in Estepona, on the Mediterranean coast, in the south of Spain, where I’m spending a few days with my family and friends.
This is the door to the beachside apartment where we’re staying.
This is the gate that lets us into the small housing complex.
Another door I saw during my morning walk. The salt air has wreaked havoc on the wooden door!
That’s probably why most doors ar iron gates.
Another nearby door.
Very near my flat, a few meters from the beach is La Torre Saladillo, a lookout tower built between 1575 and 1595, to scan the coast from north African invaders. The Moors had left th south of Spain in 1492, but there were still some invasion attempts after that. It may also have been used to catch smugglers. Amazingly, it has no door! Only two window at the top. It’s a tourist attraction right now, so I suppose they covered the walls to avoid people going inside, but who knows?
Well, I’m off to the beach for a paella, see you next week!
Look out for my AtoZ entries, lots of lovely poems for you to read.
