Quiet day in Las Galletas

Today was a walk down to our little village Las Galletas. Here we have a brand new harbor and marina. We stopped quite a few times to quench our thirst. We walked our legs off again. With CC and I trailing behind again while our very own David Bailey clicked away merrily. Thar shutter must have been red hot.

Tuesday Los Cristianos

Today it was the turn of Los Cristianos for the sightseeing lark. CJ with his trusty camera and CC and I trailing along behind him.. mind you we were quite happy to do just that because we had not seen each other for 10 years so as you can imagine we had a lot to catch up on.. The weather was just glorious. We walked along the prom from one end to the other.

Los Gigantes Tenerife

On Monday we took the auto-bus (la gua-gua) to Los Gigantes. The journey was quite an eye opener for CC & CJ and when we at last got into Los Gigantes the look on their faces was priceless. The first look at the cliffs of Gigantes is always breathtaking.

The hotels and complexes are just about aw-inspiring. We walked about seeing the lovely scenery. After a while CC and I sat in a cafe while CJ walked about taking lots of photos.

The holiday in Tenerife continues

On Sunday CJ was up early to take pictures of the dawn from their patio.

About 10 o'clock the four of us bundled into the car and drove to Los Cristianos where there is a large tourist market that is on every Sunday . It is mostly touristy sort of things but then there are few quite crafty things also.

On our way home we walked round Las Galletas. Las Galletas has some very nice streets to walk through .

We stopped and had a refreshment and discussed what excursion we would venture Monday

No beading in Tenerife

My cousin CC and her husband CJ came over to our island for two weeks holiday and I had an opportunity to see our beautiful island through fresh eyes. They loved Tenerife to bits. It was quite an eye opener for me..
The Friday they arrived it was not particularly warm . However they thought it was lovely and warm. I wondered how I was going to tell them just how hot it would get.

The next day we went to Westhaven Bay complex for a coffee and to let them see some of the scenery. While we sat beside the wall some cheeky little lizards came out for some breakfast of our cakes. We had placed some crumbs into the cracks in the wall.

The scenery is lovely from Westhaven and CC&CJ were gob smacked.

We walked down to the little village Of Las Galletas this is a small fishing village that is some what untouched by the tourist industry.
We walked down the new marina /harbor. This construction is very new it is only about a year old. From there we walked along the prom Here there is quite a few restaurants and bars.

The first pic is of the walk from Tagro Park to Westhaven Bay. The gardens are full of very interesting plants and cacti.
The next pic is of the little lizards and the last one is the veiw of Las Galletas from the patio at Westhaven.
