Almost forgotten hadn’t mentioned our travels back in early December. La Palm was a lovely weeks break back in Nov/Dec – seems a while off now we are in an icy grip. This small Canary Island has its own micro-climate.  We discovered that its “tunnel of surprises” was true – travelling from the cloudier rainy east through the tunnel we arrived to see blue skies and sunshine.We found a car invaluable for exploring the national park and coastal towns at our own leisure. A full report can be found at  virtualtourist page.
