Enjoying the Sunshine

I’ve just arrived in Fuerteventura. I’ll be here for the next the weeks enjoying the sunshine and the wonderful sandy beaches. In staying in a villa just yards from Sotovento beach, a few miles south of Costa Calma. It’s heaven.

We’ve no WiFi here so I’m going to be out of touch for a little while. I’ll hope to catch up with you all on my return.

I’m Publishing this post from my smart phone, not something I’ve done before and it’s not going smoothly to say the least but fingers crossed.

See you all soon..

  1. It could be Cornwall, but probably warmer :) You don’t stay in one place for long do you Adrian? See you on your return :)

    • Thank you Jude! I do like to travel! The coastline in places is very like Cornwall but, as you say, considerably warmer! :-)

    • Thank you Mark! The Canary Islands really are great for autumn/winter sun. Not too hot but plenty of sunshine! Perfect! :-)

  7. Yeah, the phone app sucks for posting. I use it when absolutely necessary, but it is an exercise in frustration.

    October 14, 2016 at 7:32 pm

    • It was certainly that Emilio, frustrating beyond belief! :-)

    • It’s been a much needed break Paula and I feel very lucky to have been able to take the time out. Home now though and back to the Internet and reality! Thanks for your comment. :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:17 am

  10. Enjoy your holiday.

    October 14, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    • Back now Mr Dragon. Thank you. It’s been a wonderful sunny break away from everything. The problem with not being connected to the Internet for even a short while though is that things mount up so very quickly.. :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:16 am

  11. Have fun…be safe…and bring us lots of pictures when you come back!

    October 14, 2016 at 10:52 pm

    • Thank you Scott! Home now and I do indeed have some photographs to sort and hopefully post very soon.. :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:15 am

      • You’re welcome, Adrian…and I’m glad you’re home safely. Will look forward to the seeing the treasures!

        November 8, 2016 at 3:44 am

      • Thank you Scott! It’s good to be home but already planning my next trip. It’s great to get away but always nice to come home! :-)

        November 8, 2016 at 9:22 am

  12. Sigh…looking forward to living vicariously through photos when you return…I haven’t published from my phone either, but from this end it’s all good. Have fun!

    • Thank you very much Lynn! Back now from my trip to Fuerteventura and now begins the catching up. It’s been great not to be connected to the Internet for a while but it’s amazing how things pile up when you’re not. I didn’t do a great deal of photography but I do have a nice manageable number of photos to start sorting through. I did need a good holiday, the reasons for that I’m looking forward to hopefully talking about very soon. :-)

  19. Postcard pretty!

    October 17, 2016 at 1:37 am

    • It is indeed Debbie thank you. Sorry for my late reply. I’m back from Fuerteventura now and once more connected to the Internet. It’s been rather nice to be for a while! :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:09 am

  20. Enjoy! That blue is quite extraordinary. I wouldn’t mind sitting on a beach for a day, but then I would be bored. Have a great holiday, Adrian.

    October 17, 2016 at 8:00 am

    • Thank you Andy. I know what you mean about getting bored just sitting on a beach but the beaches in Fuerteventura are fabulous and I thoroughly enjoyed the much needed boost to my vitamin D levels. Dipping in and out of the water, going for the occasional stroll and taking the odd photograph of course staved off the boredom for me. It wasn’t all sitting on the beach though and it was fun getting to know this wonderful island that has so many similarities to Iceland. :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:08 am

  21. Looks like paradise! Enjoy the nice sandy beach and lovely weather:)

    October 18, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    • Thank you Inger! Back now from sunny Fuerteventura. It really is a lovely place to visit. Perfect for me for some much needed rest! :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:03 am

  22. Seems like you are getting out of the clouds and bad weather again. But I am sure you will get some great photos anyway. :-) Enjoy the stay on Fuerteventura.

    October 18, 2016 at 7:57 pm

    • Thank you Otto! Back now from my stay in Fuerteventura. I didn’t do a great deal of photography but of course, I couldn’t resist the odd outing and when the weather turned stormy for a day or two, I had to get out into the mountains. :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 10:01 am

  23. It sure looks heavenly good, Adrian. 😊
    Have a wonderful holiday, see you soon. X

    October 22, 2016 at 12:38 am

    • Thank you Hanne! The azure ocean and the wonderful beaches really do make for a heavenly place to spend some time! I hope that you are enjoying Norway. I will reply to your email later.. :-) x

  25. Looks so idyllic, Adrian. Enjoy. :)

    October 30, 2016 at 1:59 pm

    • Thank you so much Sylvia! Back now from idyllic Fuerteventura. Now the catching up begins. Three and half weeks without the Internet has been really very refreshing but there’s an awful lot of catching up to be done now! :-)

      November 7, 2016 at 9:59 am

  26. Well done good result

    November 7, 2016 at 2:48 pm
