Holiday in Gran Canaria 2017 - Looking Back IV




Freckles are starting to show after a few days 


Cotton wool clouds in a blue sky


Making the odd friend along the way


Enjoying quality time together


One of the best beaches in the world


Writing in the sand


Last beer under blue skies :( 


Feeling the water between my toes - memories forever. 


My Travels - Gran Canaria continued

In May 2014 we headed off to Gran Canaria. What a beautiful place. I love the canaries, but Gran Canaria is by far my favourite now. 











Holiday in Gran Canaria 2017 - Looking Back III


Still red hot before sunset


The turtles were out having an early evening sunbath


Had to take Boofle 



Arty shots as we strolled towards the sea front for the evening



The palm trees silhouetted against the evening sky was dramatic


Time for Tapas! When in the Canaries...


It has to be Canarian potatoes


Cocktail time - Long Island Iced Tea



Live music - right up our street - good times 


Holiday in Gran Canaria 2017 - Looking Back II


The skies were blue, the temperatures were soaring.


After a long first day and a good sleep - we treated ourselves to a full breakfast. 


Then stayed in the shade a bit - phewf it got hot around lunch time!! 


Glad rags on and ready to roll :) 



For more scrumptious food. 


Feeling very contented and very full, we walked back past the beach sculptures. 



Holiday in Gran Canaria 2017 - Looking Back


The obligatory glass of wine - in the morning - at the airport!! 


Starving on arrival - pizza - nom nom. 


The place was fab - beautiful flowers over the balcony and 2 balconies


Slightly tired from the early start - so I put a bow on and headed out to explore! 


Made it to the first evening so glammed up! 


And headed for a chinese. And more wine. 


It was divine food. 


And much needed - chow mein - my favourite. 


Selfie time. 


Back to the apartment for poses by the pool and a big sleep :)
