Some piccies from my holiday.

You know how I like to share, so here are some piccies from my holiday. Be warned this post is definitely picture heavy.

As I mentioned yesterday, I had a fantastic holiday. We went back to a hotel, we had stayed in the previous year in Caleta Du Fuste in Feureventura. The staff are fabulous at keeping the children entertained, which allowed me to indulge in my favourite pastime - reading. Imagine just lying there all day with a book, in between quick dips in the pool. Absolute bliss.

First day and a brand new book which I picked up at the airport. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. An excellent read - imagine Twilight, but with just wolves.

This is one of my favourite pictures of hubby and one of my girlies strolling along.
Sunrise from the apartment. Every morning I managed to be awake to see it, which was amazing after all the late nights we had. There is something really beautiful about just sitting and watching the sun rise.
Here is a picture of the beaches at Caleta Du Fuste. The one at the back was a little bit too rocky, but the other two were really sandy. When you waded out into the sea, you found yourself surrounded by fish.
My girlies and me going out to dinner. We ate out every night as I absolutely refuse to cook. The rest of the family are happy to oblige as cooking is not one of my best talents.
The island is absolutely full of stray cats. I am sure it is one of the things that draws me back each year. Luckily there is a charity on the island that provides food and water for the strays. As you walk around the island you will see feeding stations provided for them. The little one in the picture arrived on my doorstep the first morning we arrived and loved nothing more than a cuddle. Every morning she would curl up on my lap, purring away. You cannot imagine how upset I was to leave her behind. If I could have taken her home in my hand luggage I would have.
Our holiday would not have been as wonderful as it was, without the superb Thomas Cook entertainment team at the resort. They work really long hours, but they always had time for all the guests. How they managed to remember every one's names I have no idea.

Dave was fantastic at entertaining both the adults and kids. An amazing singer too.
The lovely Aairon, the head of the entertainment team. What a fabulous guy.

A big thank you to all of the team for making our holiday such a wonderful experience and giving us memories we will never forget. Thank you Stevie Jo, Dave, Claire, Aairon and Laura.

So there you go, a whirlwind photo journey through our holiday. I hope you enjoyed the trip.
Thanks for stopping by.

  7. There is an unwritten law that says " ye shall not cook on vacation" Yup, truly, it is out there. You and your girls looked just beautiful all dressed up for dinner. Glad you had such a good time.

  8. Do I detect a review of Shiver soon? I hope so, Amazon recommended it in my list of recommendations (obviously) last week so it is now sitting quite happily in my wish list.

    I would have been gutted to leave kitty too - how adorable. Looks like an amazing time was had by all - love that first picture of you, looking very relaxed!

    Ahh, entertainment for the kids. When my brothers and I were young, our parents would take us with Haven - that tiger scared me to death!

  17. I am so jealous & wish I could've snuck along with you! We spent a week in Jamaica a few years ago & had a kitty friend there. He seemed to belong to the resort as there was always food for him, but I hated leaving him behind!
