Seen in Passing
We still have lovely warm days here in Tenerife, many with high humidity, others with a little sea breeze blowing across my garden. Here are a few photos taken on recent walks around the town.
Passing by a Sunday flea market, I met and chatted with this gentleman from Madrid who was trying out a classical guitar for sale. He said he was on holiday and missed his own guitar so was happy to be able to sit down, borrow the guitar and practise for a few minutes.
Leather bags - real or imitation, are popular in flea markets here.
I bought a pot of thyme from this plant stall. It's one of my favourite herbs so I always have some growing year round in large patio pots.
Headless models display summer dresses.
A stroll by Alvaro's newly furbished tennis and sports centre and Quintana restaurant. There is a well equipped gym, machine and mat Pilates classes and paddle courts as well as tennis and a soccer field there, located in the La Paz area of Puerto de la Cruz.
Doris offers me some German cheesecake when I buy a loaf of bread at the bakery window.
A Canary palm with branches of tiny dates graces a small street garden.
And overhead a paraglider floats into the late afternoon sun.
Thanks for dropping by and hasta la vista!
