Our Theme this week is Spanish Design

Actually, after checking the other headbangers' blogs, I discovered that our theme for NEXT week is Spanish Design.  Alas, I am stuck posting late as it is and without something handy for looking down. If I had my camera with me I would look down on the messy desk at my office. But I don't. So there it is. At least I am well prepared for next week.

So I searched back to a visit to one of the missions of California which we visited a couple of years ago. It is not one of the original 21 missions founded by Fr. Junipero Serra, but one which came later and is not on the El Camino Real--the King's Highway--but off from it a ways nearby.

The sign tells its story.

The tower is my header.
Oh, I thought I brought the sign with the story of the cactus. If you notice, at the top of the bell tower near the cross a cactus grows. It was planted there by Fr. Peyri to mark the completion of the construction of the mission.

Other headbangers will have already posted their interpretation of Spanish Design. Look for their blogs through the links in my sidebar.

Beautiful in such a simple way. I love your header picture--it's what I think of when I think Spanish architecture.
