I really did intend getting back to this before now! I think this time I will show you some of the Tenerifian buildings I really liked. There were masses of holiday homes: houses and apartments, churches….. and these old fishermen’s houses. There aren’t too many of these left now.
I love the mountain view behind the old houses and stores on the right, by the way – all very arid and volcanic!
I love this little pink balcony with its pillars and pergola, one in a row of them.
This blue tower is a restaurant at the end of the pier at Costa del Silencio – not quite the end of the pier pavilion we think of in the UK.
…..the public loos! Not bad, eh? You’re not allowed to go in if you are wet, presumably from swimming rather than the rain! (It must rain there some time!)
That’s Peter standing in the distance outside the apartment!
Sadly this beautiful arcaded building had been deserted and left to fall into disrepair. I think it had been a restaurant once.
Just before I finish, I must show you some sandcastles made of black sand of course! You can just see the red bucket the guy put out for your appreciation of his work! He must spray the sand throughout the day, but I wonder how long each building survives?
Well, this has been a long time in the production. I will try and do better next time! Talk again soon.
