From Nottingham we headed off to Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa. It is warm year round there, and especially toasty in the summer, exactly what we were longing for after the cool & rainy Irish climate. Soaking in the sun with a book in hand, was the only thing on the to do list, exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries before a really busy next season of Ross finishing up his dissertation and applying for jobs.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of my parents letting us use their timeshare, we were able to enjoy a week away at The Regency Country Club. The hotel was beautiful with a great pool and one of the nearby beaches had aqua blue water, so each day was a choice between those two tough options. Choices, choices, choices! Someone had to make them! The yummy spanish food filled our bellies, especially Paella which is our favorite Spanish dish.
One day we ventured to the nearby water park, something we haven't done in years! It was a great holiday away. Thanks mom and dad!!!
