TENERIFE PART 5

 
Behind the coastal strip of hotels, apartments, shops and restaurants loomed the foothills of Mount Tiede, the volcano from which the island of Tenerife was formed.  You can see the snowy top of it showing just below the clouds.
 
 
The second half of the first picture of this double spread. I drew this from our usual morning spot in the gardens just before going for my aquagym session, Bob made the excuse to Liann that he had to stay and watch the paint dry!
 
 
This colourful bougainvilla grows everywhere, tumbling over walls and in the gardens in all shades of red and bright pink.
 
 
Another corner of the garden with an arch set amongst the palms for a bit of shade and interest.
 
 
A view along the coast drawn during one of our morning strolls. We never went as far as Playa las Americas, it was too annoying to have to keep avoiding the ticket touts and time share salespeople!
