A swim, a haircut and a moonlight movie
On Saturday the rollers were 1.6 meters which made for a short but exciting swim. Fortunately, we have a 50-meter pool in our complex. This was a bit of a wake up call since all of our swimming is done in the sea. We both felt like sludge in the water but with each day we feel better.
We are exploring Gran Canaria with an eye to moving here. The warm 30-degree days are very enticing. Yesterday we visited San Augustine on the other side of the sand dunes. The beach was more volcanic but the water was calmer. This seems to be a Swedish enclave. Wherever we move we want a 50-meter pool. This may be a challenge. Although there are over thirty microclimates on the island the southern end is really a rocky desert and not terribly attractive.
Today was spent waiting for the DHL man to deliver our amazon books. It may have been a fruitless wait since it is nearly seven o'clock now. There is no easy access to this complex so this could be complicated. We need the books soon so we don't have to take them home with us. Who would have thought that holiday living could be so complicated?
