The Sun Shone!

For those of you waiting eagerly (following last Sunday's post) to see if the sun shone on our holiday in Gran Canaria... it did. We arrived to rain but by the next morning the skies were blue and the sun was out!

Lots of beach action took place - we went back to the lovely Puerto de Mogan (check it out - it's super pretty) three times for walks around the harbour and trips to the beach - the bay is sheltered and the sea is shallow so I got to get a really nice swim in.

We also visited Anfi for the first time - a similarly lovely beach (with brilliant sand for sandcastle building) and warm, calm, shallow water for swimming.

Made it to Las Palmas this time too - the capital of the Canary Islands and a rather larger city than I was expecting - home to a really beautiful old town.

We stayed at the Salobre Golf resort for the second year running (neither of us play golf but the villas are lovely, it's really quiet and conveniently located just inland from Maspalomas) where we had our own, heated to bath temperature, pool to splash about in with the little man - plus visits from a friendly black cat!

So I'm now full of empanada, tortilla and wine and rather sad to be back into a grey November! Also time to get back onto the diet wagon before Christmas creeps up on me.... eek!
