So, after our family left this afternoon, we had a few hours to relax before a last meal and packing for our return trip tomorrow. Back to reality it is then, with lawns to mow, washing to get done and a trip to the supermarket. Next holiday is Santorini in October – can’t wait!
Our hotel in Ibiza. It’s been a great, albeit very short break, and we just have tomorrow left, and then our flight home on Saturday. Over 30 years since we were last here, and probably not somewhere I would rush back to, but a super holiday anyway.
Our hotel is apparently named after this old tower that has been preserved and sits in the middle of the swimming pool. What better way to enjoy the view and the sunshine than with a cold beer!
After two pretty horrendous days traveling, we finally made it to Ibiza. A cancelled flight yesterday and a long drive to an alternate airport, then a delayed flight today, with the threat of being bumped at the last minute as the plane was overloaded. Fortunately we made it, and our reward was meeting up with family, and a fabulous sunset dinner…
All good things have to come to an end, so it was goodbye this morning to the palm trees, sunshine, pools and sun loungers. Not really the end though – I figure it won’t be too long before we are back!
… 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…
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.
