Hi Everyone, Have had a good ten days in Gran Canaria, the weather has been really good - sunny most of the time. We are staying at the apartments about ten minutes from Puerto Rico. Nothing much to report really we have just been relaxing by the pool and getting a bit of a sun tan. We did go on the ferry to Puerta de Mogan which is a lovely harbour village.

Although I am not in a hurry to get off the ship, but after 11 days at sea I’m also looking forward to being ashore, so this is a bit of a contradiction. Consequently, I did some serious pacing, standing on the bridge with my binoculars and making the Captain nervous enough to actually offer me an explanation for why they were making us wait, something to do with ... read more
