Day one


This year as usual we booked with Tui but the company had hired seats on Easyjet as our carrier which took off from Luton on time at 6:20am

A very cold morning and I had two fleeces on. A bonus was we were allowed 20kg each of luggage but since our booking this is no longer available as Easyjet have reduced it to 15kg

the plane was a 319/320 airbus and looking as if it could do with a refurbishment.

As I have covered virtually all parts of PB in previous reports I was not sure what I was going to write about but apart from my old camera I now had a new one which was going to take a bit of getting use to but fun working it all out on this holiday.

Just before 10am we were approaching Arrecife. Our baggage came off pretty quickly, I think this was mainly due to a lot of the passengers only taking hand luggage.

The Tui rep standing in the arrivals corridor asked if we had a bus or taxi transfer and as we had the bus was told to go upstairs to the bus station. So we dragged our cases to the coach departures area upstairs to ask the rep there which was our coach.

"Oh", she said, "We have organised a taxi for you, sorry could not tell them downstairs in time".

No matter, this was a bonus for us and we were then given a voucher to give to the taxi driver and the rep downstairs hailed a cab for us. We were in PB in just 20 minutes.

We were greeted in the reception at the Pueblo Marinero but being very early, they made a special effort to have our room ready within an hour and looked after our cases.

We had a look around the shopping centre to see any new changes.

This sports shop is new

We also had a look around the back of the marina to see if there were any more under sea statues being made, as I wanted to get better photographs of them after last year's efforts but all had now gone. However, I found one had been placed in the marina pool area and had plants growing from it.

I was hopefully going to improve on this picture given more time.

Where we had beers.

I was looking for some images to take which would fit the title of 'refreshing' to use in a little competition being held some time next year. However, this image would not be good enough so something else to work on over the holiday.

This year we did not get our favourite room and were much further down the side from the promenade.

If I use the balcony to take photographs there will always be lamp stands in the way, which I will eventually have to later clone out for anything good lol

We both had sirloin steaks and they came out piping hot, so a bit of faith had returned in Lani's after last year cold meal.

I think he had about a thousand images with the camera set to take a picture every ten seconds

but unlike the one I saw a year ago this sun was going to fade it out before it reached the volcano. If one is lucky and the moon is bright people climbing the volcano can be seen in silhouette under the moonlight.
