A very fine hairdo on this dwelling, Chad.
gutteridge: A tidy job Ray.
it a wonderful thatched roof cottage... and it looks very old Chad....petersmile
gutteridge: This is an old village which is more of a museum Peter.
Replacing the thatch - it looks like
gutteridge: I doubt if there was one before Elizabeth, they are restoring this ancient village to how it once looked.

Is this still inhabited, Chad?
gutteridge: Not really habitable Lisl, the ancient village is being restored to how it once looked. It is more of a museum.

It might be gloomy inside despite the sun
gutteridge: An ancient dwelling Tiff, and the need for shelter probably dictated the design.
How quaint, Chad...and now I so much want to go inside!
gutteridge: Another one had been restored and we could see inside. It was very primitive and even the animals were inside.

I see you are still on the Camino - a wonderful, old thatched house, home for an heremit?
gutteridge: The ancient village of O'Cerbreiro is on very high on the Camino and is an example of how people once lived in this area. They are restoring buildings to how they would have been.

This is beautiful. I look at the roof's construction, is that slate around the walls where the thatch is resting on??
LOVE the B&W, the shadows and the bushels of reed. A likey to me.
gutteridge: Thank you for your likeyisation of this image Astrid, if I indulged in likeynesses I would likey all of yours. I think it is slate but can't vouch for that.
What a wonderful small cottage Chad!
gutteridge: Thank you Richard, it is part of a restored ancient village.
A pity the car is in the background
gutteridge: I could have removed it on photoshop Bill, but you know I feel like you about work.
Interesting building with the stone edge to the thatch
gutteridge: This is an ancient village which is being restored Martin.

A great shot. Do the hikers use it for overnights?
gutteridge: No Louis, just a museum piece.
The place name beginning in O, one might believe this cottage is in Ireland.
gutteridge: That is very observant of you Mary.

Looks a des res. It looks as though there is frost on the building?
gutteridge: That is the fresh straw Alan.
the automobile looks most incongruous standing next to this abode, Chad
gutteridge: It certainly does Ayush.
Now that is primitive living!
gutteridge: Not my style of living Tom.
