La Gomera again

I've just spent another week in La Gomera. I enjoyed it so much in November, that I took my kids with me this time. None of us were disappointed. It's such a lovely island. I've uploaded some pictures, and they're not quite in the right order, but if I move them about I'm afraid that they'll lose the ability to be enlarged by clicking on them.

The picture below was taken near the pool where we were staying. We went to a barbeque and there was a Gomeran band and dancers that came along to entertain us. If you go to the bottom of this post, you'll find a video of the band playing. I took this on my camera so it's quite short.

This picture was taken from the footpath that took when we walked down to the village of Playa Santiago. It was a very steep path, and took us about 20 minutes downhill. My kids nearly always insisted on walking back up, which they did, but I always took a taxi. We found an amazing tapas place right on the beach close to where the road seems to curve around to the left in the picture, so we ate lunch there on our last two days. It was wonderful. They do these delicious sauces called mojo. There's a red (hot) mojo, and a green (not so hot) mojo. Most restaurants give you bowls of mojo to dip bread into while you're waiting for your meal to arrive.

At last the video has been uploaded, and now I can publish this post. I will write another post with pictures of our dolphin watching day later.

A treat for Hooli

Here's a picture of Hooli getting ready to catch and swallow a treat. You can just see the treat in the top right hand corner of the picture. It looks like a little brown nut flying towards his waiting mouth.

He's so easy to please.

This little lamb was lost and crying for its mother.

Easter Wishes

A friend sent me this in an e-mail, so I simply had to pass it along.....

A lady opened her refrigerator and saw a rabbit sitting on one of the shelves.

"What are you doing in there?"

She asked.

The rabbit replied:

"This is a Westinghouse, isn't it?", To which the lady replied


"Well," the rabbit said,
"I'm westing."

Sorry.... I couldn't stop myself.
Have a Wonderful Easter...
