Snowballing in Lanzarote!


Okay so you think I'm kidding, well only just, but we do have snow!

Lanzarote is not well know for snow or cold. The island is famous for sunny beach days all year round, but this year we have a new attraction , The Snowglobe. It took my eye when I headed into the Biosfera in Puerto Del Carmen and I just had to take a peek.

Here it is and anyone who wants to get that special festive feeling can step inside and play snowballing!



If you live in Lanzarote or are just visiting you can enjoy the magic of snow without freezing, and you can still wear your beach gear. Now how cool is that!




Away from the magic of The Snowglobe, I've been busy editing my new book, The Summer of Sixty Five which is due out in 2013. It's going slowly as I've a lot of changes to make, but I am sure it is all for the best. Importantly, I am still enjoying the story and the company of the amazing characters that bring it to life. Like most characters they like to take over and take the lead part!

As I can hear the characters calling, I'd best be away and as always, thank you for stopping by and I hope if you can you'll visit our wonderful Snowglobe.

Until next time, sending sunny smiles and let's catch up again soon.

lol I love it! My daughter collects snowglobes but think this one might be a bit on the big side! She'd love it though!

JB, I guess it would be a tad too big, but it is impressive. xx
