TENERIFE PART 6

 
The gardens of the hotel contained an amazing selection of different palm trees, this is a selection planted around the swimming pool.
 
 
On a holiday like this it's hard to escape from other people and how sad that it's usually the English who show themselves up.  One afternoon we had sat near a family and couldn't avoid hearing everything the bossy wife told her poor downtrodden husband to do, even his parents who were on holiday with them were dumbstruck!
 
 
Every evening after dinner there was live entertainment in the hotel bar. A variety of groups appeared varying from Abba, 2 different Beatles, the Eagles and the 3 tenors tribute bands.  By far the best was the Elvis, My way, group who had us in stitches for an hour!
 
 
Another of our hotel buildings with it's shady balconies, very welcome I expect in summer when it gets really hot.
 
 
We saw the weather forecasts for home and England on our kindles every day and were really pleased to be there in the sun when the snow fell heavily on Northern Europe.
