Day 88 – High And Dry…

Last morning of our short break in Dorset, and the weather didn’t disappoint. A quick walk down to the harbour before we left and a last chance to look at the boats. I figure we will be back before long…

Day 86 – Out Of Season…

In season I reckon these beach huts at Sandbanks, Poole, will be pretty busy, but today not one was in use. Beach huts, most of which can’t be stayed in overnight and typically don’t have toilet facilities, can sell for upwards of £100k in some areas. I’m sure that if I could afford one, I’d be using it all the time!

Day 46 – Everything Comes…

… to him who waits. So the sunsets every night of our holiday so far have been pretty rubbish – well, that is, with absolutely no cloud in the sky, the sun has just slipped away leaving just a faint glow – no drama at all. With some intermittent cloud today (our last day), it looked more promising so off I set to the lighthouse at Maspalomas to see what was in store… And boy, did it deliver! This is just an iPhone shot – hopefully I’ll have better still when I get to look at my Sony A7iii images on the computer. But for now, I’m happy…

Day 45 – ‘Piering’ Out To Sea…

Not much of a pier in truth, just an old concrete jetty by the lighthouse at Maspalomas. There are archeological ruins nearby of an aboriginal settlement dating back some 1000 years, but the area is dominated by the Maspalomas Sand Dunes, and numerous holiday hotels.

Day 44 – Someone’s Got To Do It…

There’s no guarantee of warm weather and sunshine in the Canary Islands in February, but we hoped for temperatures in the low 20s, with at least some sunshine. Our expectations have been somewhat exceeded, with wall to wall sunshine all week, and as you see, the temperature peaked at an impressive 34°C this afternoon. So warm in fact that we had to seek shelter (in the bar of course!)
