Melide Stone Bridge


I finished my painting today, of the stone bridge in Melide, Spain. I saw a photo in one my niece’s  blog posts. She walked the way of St. Francis, the Camino de Santiago, in northern Spain. I loved the perspective of the photo and decided to paint the bridge.  This post is dedicated to Jennifer Townsend who walked the way for justice for girls caught up in human trafficking. She raised over $27,000 for International Justice Missions of Canada.

Pilgrims walk stone bridge

Aching feet soon will find rest

Albergue just in sight

Relief from hot sun welcomed

A pilgrim’s meal brings new strength

  1. Thank you so much for dedicating this post to my Camino walk! And for painting this lovely picture! I am so glad that I could provide a photo that inspired you. May I please ask, would it be possible for me to buy this painting from you? I would love to have it as a memory of my trip! 🙂

    • Oh, I am over the hill when it come to hiking! I have way too many pounds that would get dragged along! Thanks for the comment. Hope you and your son have survived your trek with lots of great memories.
