Mosaic Monday # 104 - fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

News of internet problems at home has reached me whilst we've been taking life easy relaxing in the Canary Islands so I'm prepping my next Mosaic Monday post now and scheduling it in advance in case normal service has not been resumed by the weekend when we get back to Normandy.
Of course I'm hoping that will not be the case and I’ll be able to write a fuller post but if you're reading these words you'll know that this is Plan B.
A striking feature of the landscape here in Tenerife is of course Mount Tiede. We had hoped to take an excursion to the National Park to get a closeup view of Tiede but have been unable to find a tour which was reasonable in both hours spent touring (9 hours is too long for me to be sitting on a bus which seats 50) and price (private tour with personal guide for just the two of us was too expensive at €430).
At the beginning of the week we did go whale and dolphin watching but I’m saving that tale until I can blog properly again.


So for now, I’m sharing some more shots taken around the hotel and grounds and concentrating on getting the inlinkz link up to work ready for Mosaic Monday.

  5. Maggie - you are going above and beyond to make sure Mosaic Monday stays on schedule … true dedication while you are on holiday! I laughed at the shot of the dessert (?) bowl side by side with the empty bowl … must have been delicious! I was also struck by the picture of the palm trees in the foreground with desert and mountains beyond - I think of Tenerife as small, so I am wondering about that particular landscape. Look forward to hearing and seeing more!
