Tenerife, Canary Islands

One of our stops on the way from Rio to Barcelona was in Tenerife, Canary Islands. Canary Islands come from the Latin word for dog which is 'canaria'. When the islands were first discovered, the Europeans who discovered the islands found large dogs on the island of Grand Canary.
This was a first for us; seeing a man riding a bike with a parrot on his shoulder. Greg snapped his picture while he was stopped at a light. Great pet to have!

We always love it when we pass by a local market. You can find nuts, dried fruit and olives in abundance.

 Greg is a master at framing a photo before he takes it. This is another view of Tenerife.
The mountains have not changed since 2012. I know this because I took this photo in 2012 when I was in Tenerife with Arta.

  1. I wonder if everyone looks at a rainbow and then thinks about a pot of gold. That thought comes to me, fleeting, but it is still there when I look at your picture of the mountains on Tenerife.

    If you come home with a parrot for a pet, I won't be surprised.
