new editorial

Welcome to this week’s edition of our paper, thanks to Scott for giving me a break last week, it was lovely to have him and my family out here.

It is a sad week as our Ex Pat community says good bye to two very dear friends "Sue and Pete" as they head off on new adventures after many years here on the Island. They have packed up their Camper Van and driven off into our beautiful sunshine with a carefree attitude as to where they end up. Mixed feelings - we are sad to see them go, a little envious of their new found freedom and happy that they have taken the plunge for adventure. They take with them their rescue dogs from Fuerteventura.

Bon voyage from all who knew and loved you - we wish you so well and send us a postcard from wherever you stop for a while.

Till next week,

Penny x

    Fancy a fresh tasty meal right beside the sea, then this is for you.

    Just walk along towards the harbor to discover great sea front restaurant offering all cuisine. There is plenty of seating outside of which is enclosed with new looking plastic awnings so visibility is still good and it effectively keeps the sea winds off you.
