NCL Sun – Day 6 – Tenerife

The sun is shining, the breeze is comfortable. It is Friday. Given the day/date, I doubted much of anything was going to be open so took a wander off the ship about 1000. It is an easy port to navigate: there are clear signs pointing to the city center and there is a clear blue line on the pavement to follow.

It was interesting walking along the harbor, then up the hill (aren’t all good harbors in coves with hills immediately behind?)


along the tram line. Looking across the bridge I usually take to get to the market, it was obvious everything was closed. Hum – Catholic country (Spain) – major holiday – Good Friday = everything closed. Well, almost everything. There were a few cafes open and several small souvenir stores, but that was about it. 

Heading back down along the chanel

These two lovely murals are under that bridge you can see in the distance –

After about another hour of walking around, I headed back to the ship, went for soup and spent the afternoon stitching.

the house is done, as is the second ballon and some other small things. I think I am a bit burned out on this particular piece and might just change projects for a couple of day. Or else stitching the lady on the other side of the house and then change projects. By the numbers, it is about 1/3 complete…

Current position this evening – leaving Tenerife and headed to Madeira.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
