Flight to La Palma

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Just to remind you that we have gone with friends to La Palma in the Canary Islands, except we aren’t there yet! Our plane couldn’t land because of high winds, so the plane diverted to Tenerife. We are now on the ferry with a lot of Spanish people dressed in white, on our way to La Palma. The people in white are on their way to the last night of a big festival on La Palma, where¬† “talc bombs” are thrown about, and tourists are seen to be fair game.

Anne, who is terrified of flying, felt the flight in was a little bumpy and the 3 attemts to land were unessessary. Vicky is now struggling because she hates anything to do with water. Paul and I are happy to be taking it easy and glad to be back on a boat. Piccies to follow.
