The Hike Begins
Luis Illescas giving us all a bit of a show
|Valery Linares gave the spiritual message at the top. She passed around the bible and everyone read parts of the creation, very appropriate, as we sat on top of the world.|
We were worried about the sun but the big problem was the wind. This beach is famous for its wind and wind surfing. It was Easter weekend and the wind cooperated as hundreds were there taking advantage of the stiff breeze.
Wind Surfing looked very fun.
A view of the volcano Teidi on our way up.
We had a picnic by the beach after. I made chicken croissant sandwiches, carrot sticks, potato salad and rice crispy treats (with my recent find, marshmallows) It reminded me of windy Easter picnics, we used to have in Moab, when I was a kid. We ate a bit of sand.
Our last windy photo. Lots of pictures were taken that day. It was great fun! We look forward to many more good days together...and hopefully with an even bigger group.
