We are back

This is La Restinga by night from one of our balconies.

Now we are back from El Hierro. We arrived with the ferry about 8 o'clock last night.
We have had a wonderful weather and it has been relaxing to be there. But I think our vacation of nine days is too short. We would need 2-3 weeks! Maybe we can have some more days off in May? It depends on how crowded the restaurant will be in the nights.

It was quite windy when we went home by the ferry yesterday and Clas didn't feel well. Some of the passengers even started vomiting.
The Fred Olsen ferry is a catamaran ferry and it goes well in the big waves and I thought it was just relaxing to be rocked back and forth and fell in sleep and missed out the whole travel that takes about two hours.
On our travel out to El Hierro we saw dolphins swimming beside the ferry.

Today a heat-wave from the desert of Sahara hit Tenerife and it's +32 right now in the shadow on our balcony. We have a calima going on and it's windy too and a lot of sand and dust in the air which makes me sneeze all the time.
Good we don't have to play tonight when it's really terrible to sing when we have calima going on.

Tonight we are going to have a barbecue on the balcony. We are both so tired of eating nice dinners out in the restaurants that we said yesterday we maybe should eat only water and bread for a couple of weeks now to get the appetite back. Our nice dinners on El Hierro were like the drop that made it run over.
Gourmandizing is an unhealthy way of living and it has given us a serious problem when there isn't any menu that would attract our taste buds anymore. We can sit for hours every night and try to figure out what we are going to have for dinner and there is no desire of having a meal. We just shiver when we think about food.
The only thing we would like to have is Finnish sausage and Garlic cucumber, and we can't have that here on Tenerife.
Sunday we start working again and that is good for us when we don't have to think about what to eat. We just get there and they serve us the meal they have decided. Very easy!
