Hi from Palm Mar - Tenerife
« on: April 18, 2008, 20:16:18 PM »
Hola to my lovely Flooey and everyone out there.

I am sunny from Tenerife, Palm Mar in fact.  Great to read all your news from Lanzarote etc, but thought it would be nice to add a bit of Tenerife news too.

We live in Palm Mar, (by we I mean me and hubby and Freddie our cockatiel, who we brought over from England with us 3 years ago, (don't even ask why lol lol), we also brought over our lovely black lab Oscar who sadly had to be put to sleep 8 weeks ago, I won't even go there at the moment, its all too raw.

Anyway we love it here, Palm Mar is situated between Las Galletas an old fishing village, lovely to sit and have lunch etc on the sea front, not too commercialised and Los Cristianos the other side of Palm Mar, the other side of Montana Guaza.  OK if you want all that etc.

Palm Mar is a purely residential area, still being built up, we are fortunate that we overlook the sea and only 3 minutes walk to the beach.  To be honest it will be another five years or so before Palm Mar is completed.  We love it here a very good and friendly community, more places opening every day,  some nice Spanish bars and tapas bars, as well as restaurants, some aimed more for tourists.  I could go on and on but don't want to bore you too much lol lol

I love to look at lots of forums and this one is a goody

Speak to you all soon
Cheers (the weekend starts now, so Flooey I shall shortly be raising a glass (or more) to you

I will also be shining my torch from the balcony to you over there in Lanzarote ha ha

Luv
Sunny xx

Hi Sunny

Sounds lovely where you are.

Me and the other half spend most of our lives working but also own an apartment in Playa Blanca Lanzarote almost within sight of where Flooey lives.  We have been to Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria but hope to visit Tenerife soon and some of the smaller islands so will note your tips for the future.

PS I especially want to got up Mount Teide which I have seen from Gran Canaria.
I love Lanzarote!

Sounds great Sunny and I'm off in a minute to Google it.
We used to stay in Puerto Colon whenever we went to Tenerife and had some great times there but then we discovered Lanzarote and that was that!

Don't drink too much or you'll have a bad head in the morning.  ;)

PS really sorry to hear about Oscar.

Thanks guys for your replies,  if you ever visit Tenerife be sure to give us a call, would be great to meet up.

I would also love to visit Teide, but I have a dreadful height problem (BORING I know) but a serious problem.  Up until now we have been a bit limited because of our lovely old lab Oscar and we would not leave him with anyone at his age 12 and half..  But we are planning a trip up to the north in early May for a few days.  We tried it when we first moved here, but the extreme sheer drops on the side of the road blew my head in.

Now I know you don't me very well but, and I am quite normal (at times) believe me, but we have got a blindfold for me for when we hit the sheer drops, so Dave can just tell me when to take it off (the blindfold that is) lol lol when the roads are safe again.

Not sure what it is like with you all out there in Lanzarote but many roads out here are just terrible.

Hope you are all having a good night, we are on our second bottle of Chateau Migraine lol lol
Cheers

Hi everyone from Palm Mar

Hope you are all well.  The weather has been overcast and chilly (for us) the last couple of days, what's it like where you are??

Gorgeous here today in Playa Blanca. Blue skies, and a slight breeze. It's about 23 degrees. Forecast says it will be hazy but up to 27 degrees at the weekend though - yippee!

Yes, we're fine here in PB thanks hon. It's been lovely again today (although the wind is picking up this evening). We've got a heatwave coming over the next 2 or 3 days though - hurrah!

I've just been out for a ciggie, and waved. Did you see me? ;)

Love to you and Mr Sunny
