I've been on my jollies...

Morning all

I've been on my jollies to the wonderful Tenerife where it was lovely hot sunshine every day for a fortnight,  just laying on a sunbed drinking cocktails and dipping in and out of  the pool when it was too hot, and now we're back home and it's been rain, rain, rain.

Don't you just hate that, you want to show off your tan but all you can see from under the brolly is your nose end!! Never mind, as usual we had a marvellous time and we decided  to go for a ride on a camel which wasn't as frightening as I thought it was going to be

"up you get matey"

and we're off!!
We saw  a mother and a six day old baby camel, it's coat was a bit like a sheep's all soft and cuddly

isn't she gorgeous???

We spent a few hours on a boat  in the ocean to see the whales and dolphins

these were right beside our boat and if I'd had long enough arms you could have touched them.

We usually had a walk down to the beach on a night to watch  the locals  "crabbing" and the sunsets were amazing

but apart from that we just sunbathed all day and read our books...ah that's the life if ever we won the lottery!!

But today it's back to work with my tape measure,

bye for now

Sounds like you had a great time. Love the sunset pictures. We have had some sun here, and unlike last year I even have a slight tan, but certainly nothing to compare with yours.

Beautiful photos of your holiday. The canary islands look amazing, I have never been there but we are looking forward to going soon. The baby camel looks adorable, and I love the idea of sun bathing by the pool in the sun.

Hi Lucey
Welcome back :o)
Looks like you've had a super holiday.
Lovely photos :o) The carved melon is amazing...
Such a sweet little camel, I've seen dolphins but haven't had the pleasure of whale watching. That crab looks a little scary though..don't think I'd like them too much!
Hope you don't have to cover your tan up for many more days...the only thing I've got is rust!
