Secret Places: CASTLE
This is The Monestary at The Grotto in Portland, Oregon. I have featured this spot before in this photo blog but when I read that this week’s theme was “Secret Places” I couldn’t help but think of this place and this particular picture. I am a frequent visitor as it is a lovely botanical garden as well as a place for Peace, Solitude and Prayer. This was taken on my latest visit. The sun was just coming out as a friend and I walked this path. We met a man with his daughter who couldn’t have been more than 5 or 6. I saw the look in her eyes as she first gazed upon what she called a castle in almost magical reverence. She couldn’t contain herself as she burst ahead of her father and ran up the path to her “castle”.
