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.
