Winter Sun in the Canaries
We decided to lounge by the pool in the glorious sunshine. Some of the group could not wait to get in the pool for a swim.The water was so nice and refreshing! We had a great time splashing, doggie paddle racing and star floating on our backs.
In the evening we danced the nights away in some brilliant bars with live music! Some of us took the stage with Karaoke....We felt like pop stars!
Our mission was to make our way up Mount Teide, an active Volcano on the island! We enjoyed the walk along the paths and the beautiful landscape that surrounded us.
A boat trip in the blissful sunshine was something we all couldn't wait to do! The Captain gave us an interesting tour of the two islands and its history with the deep channel in between them, allowing a variety of dolphins and whales to pass through at different times of the year. Well, today did not disappoint! We spotted a group of short finned pilot whales which delighted us all. As we moved away from the whales some dolphins came to play by the boat, splashing and jumping out of the water. What a joy to watch and so close to us too!
There were lots of games to be played around the pool area. Jenga was the most popular game, which was really good fun!
At the Monkey World, everyone loved seeing various species of monkeys, alligators and we were lucky enough to feed the guinea pigs and parrots.
We decided to play a game of football on the beach, it was great fun! Everyone enjoyed trying to score goals against each other.
