Sunday in Gran Canaria

Had a lovely walk this morning, no-one out between 6 and seven and saw the sun rise over the hills
Two photos only today, one shows the balconies from the pool, the one with the red dot is ours. The other shows one of the beautiful stone seats covered with flowers that are dotted around the harbour.

We spent the morning on the balcony, stitching and reading. I had a play with Gimp, a free photo editing software hence the notes on my photos today.
Then a quick shopping trip, don't laugh - I bought myself a bikini, haven't worn one in years. There are women with a lot worse figures than mine going topless here, so why shouldn't I wear a bikini? In answer to your question - no there won't be any photos of me in it!

A quick kip after lunch and then up to one of the 4 pools for some serious tanning.

You'll be pleased to hear that I've finished my Coq Au Pins scissor pouch.

I've also been putting some back stitches around my BCS samples so that I can patch them together. I'm doing another BCS pieces as well. So I'm keeping busy and my shoulder has not been so bad today but then I went back to taking the pain killers today as I had a bad evening last night.
