A Change of Plan

Monday morning. We had planned to take the local bus for the hour's ride up to Vallehermoso in the north of the island. However,  as we sat on a bench waiting for the bus to arrive we could see the clouds gathering up above us on the peaks.

Realising that this would mean it would be misty and cool where we were headed we decided to give it a miss until a clearer day.

Coffee in the market bar and a wander around town (and a 1 euro beer) before heading back to our apartment for a snooze.




Elfie had fun sliding down the banister at the 14th century tower in the park.

  1. Naughty Elf noticed the word "HIPPY" carved into the banister and wondered if Mummy Elf had been a hippy in her youth. He imagined her first meeting with Daddy Elf at an open-air pop festival.

    1. I thought you would notice that Mr P. Apparently La Gomera was popular with hippies back in the day and quite a few never went back home. There are two in particular we see around town who look as if they have been really smoking.

  2. A wise decision. Hope you are able to make the trip another day.

    1. Perhaps on Saturday if the local forecast is accurate.

  3. Elfie looks like he's sliding up and down the the bannister of life. Hope he doesnt get any splinters. Happy Christmas to the three of you.
