New Favourite Place

Cathy and I headed out yesterday to find new beach, El Bollullo near to Puerto de La Cruz (well, new to us anyway) and although we found it, the weather was not so good there and so we headed back to the sunshine and ended up in a place called Radazul – it is clear…

Filming in Los Cristianos

Easter Sunday 2013 and a film crew arrives at the Magic Roundabout in Los Cristianos, Tenerife.  Local Police turn up too, lots of standing around takes place.  Then a beautiful Stag arrives.  More standing around, must be par for the course.  The 2 small barriers are pulled across the roadway and, yes the stag leaps…

NYE 2013

What a fabulous night we had, even though we missed the Bands at the Cultural Centre this year! We arrived too late and soon found they were half way through their final number and then they started packing away, oops. Here are some photos of the evening’s festivities:

Sea Cloud Visit

On 10th November 2012, this great ship, Sea Cloud, visited Los Cristianos, and Cathy and I went down to the Port to have nosey.  Really enjoyed taking these photos!

A Walk to the Shops and Back

Simply Mo with Elinor

Surprised by the Family!

They got their own back last night … ‘come down to the Irish Times to take some photos of Aaron’s birthday please’ was the message I got a week ago. So, not feeling too well (my blood sugar is playing up at the moment), I pushed myself to go down for about 10:30 hrs and…
