Tenerife-Canary Islands





Alas,

this is my last travelogue 
post..
from our European tour last fall..

but flipping through
the photos...

I remembered it all as if it was just yesterday...


our last stop before heading home
was 
the Canary Islands..

we had no idea what to expect..
and we woke to this...






rain, 
cloudy,
breezy...








and then suddenly..
the clouds moved out











and the rainbows appeared..








two of them..
one traversed the islands..









and with such a spectacular start..
we expected our day 
was going to be splendid...







stepping foot on land
we were greeted by a huge vertical green wall...















which was stunning...








and a monument..

and then we began to walk...
uphill...









walking, walking, walking..






above..
  the view 
looking back to the water...




and more walking... up hill..





up...




up...




to a park..







and then it seemed to even out for a bit..
and this fountain was so beautiful..









the clouds parted just at the right moment..






and being hungry..
we kept walking...






until we found a lovely little 
cafe...








and I had the most deliciously decadent 
gluten free chocolate muffin
and cappuccino..








and while it was never on our list of places to see...
we both enjoyed ourselves 
so much..






how could we resist with such
a glorious welcome...


it was really a lovely journey...



C4N!

Wonderful impressions!

The double rainbow was worth the visit, but the walk seemed to be filled with lush greenery, too. So glad you shared this final leg of your trip with us, because it is all simply stunning. And of course, now I'm hungry for chocolate.

Looks like lots of people live close to the ocean and have a great view.

Isn't it fun to reminisce ? I can't decided if I loved the wall of plants, the textural ground or that statue the most. Mostly I think I love that you had a great time ;) Laura

Reminds me of the south of France which I know quite well.
Lovely when the mountains bring storms and heavy rain; my favourite weather.

Hi Laura, The wall of plants was stunning and I only wish the long shot of it had turned out, but oh well.... and we traveled to so many places that when I returned, I just could not share them all at once with so many other posts to do!! x

Hi Sue, it was lovely and yes a bit like southern France, though not as charming!!
