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.

I just googled La Gomera and as I suspected... it's not in Milton Keynes. Just call me Sherlock Holmes, but something in your photos put me on the right scent. I have an uncanny instinct when it comes to... talking nonsense!?
Looks beautiful there, dabrah.

What a nice place to relax. The photo of the beach, from that point of view, is great. Are that black rocks and black sand?

Oh lovely! Looks like you had a super holiday. Is this only the second time visiting la gomera or do you go there every year?
