Santa Cruz - La-Palma

 Welcome to the Town of Santa Cruz - La Palma - one of the Canary Islands.
 Nestling between the Mountains.

 The main parade is lined with Palm Trees
 - and Greenery.



 Just look at these buildings with their balconies.
 The sea - crashing against the rocks.

 Shopping and then going for a snack and coffee-tea in one of the many cafes-bars.


 One of the many Churches in Santa Cruz, where families gather after the services in the square.
 Which way now? - so many side streets with shops - shops - shops.

 And Street Markets too.
 Hey !! - Im now into Digital - well that makes 2 Macs that I know of are,lol.
Just to the left - is the road to the docks and  our ship - The Arcadia.

Watch-out for the Header Challenge tomorrow - our theme is (Look at what I saw) and mine comes from Santa Cruz.-- so make a date to visit the Headbangers tomorrow evening - or Thurs morn.

Looks a colourful town, with a mixture of old and new. I bet you've got a good header this time

You go to so many interesting places. I could never afford such trips. You must have won the lottery.

Brings back memories of our holidays there ! Looks unchanged except maybe a few more of these ugly high appartment houses ! Business is business !
