Blowing the Cobwebs Away!


Phew what a start to the New Year and not all good, but to shake the gloom and cobwebs away, Saturday we got out our bikes and went for a fabby cycle ride.

We cycled along the wonderful cycle path that runs along the seafront at Puerto del Carmen through to Arrecife around15kms. The sea with its gentle waves lapping on the shore close by, the beach doted with sunbathers, the breeze in your hair and the sun on your face, now that is how to forget all your troubles.



Heading towards the airport we watched as silverbirds flew onto the island, bringing more tourists and taking the sun kissed ones back their home countries.

On the way back we parked our bikes and stopped at a lovely cafe /restaurant overlooking the ocean for a late lunch and munched into a mega club sandwich. Filled with roast chicken, bacon, egg, cheese, ham and salad we then pedalled along the seafront and up the very steep hill to home. Phew did I feel better...... Yay!

Sorry your New Year was not all good, Pauline. Hope things straighten out soon. Your bike rides sound so therapeutic. Wish I could ride a bike!

Nothing like a good walk or even better a nice cycle ride to blow the cobwebs away. I love cycling and it looks such a beautiful setting x

I wish it was warm short shirt-sleeves weather outside where I live. It looks like an ice planet outside my window. If I stepped out, no doubt the abominable snowman would kill me.

Oh that sounds a great way to celebrate a new year! Send us some sunshine, Pauline.

Hi Nikki, cycling is great, but here only in the winter as it is too hot for me!

Hello Michael, just keep away from the abominable snowman and keep warm... sending our sunshine to you!

Hi Rosemary, sunshine all packed up and on it's way to you!
