Well Im back but I must admit to being a little Jaggered

Hi Everyone its so lovely to be back home again and know that Im more likely to get a good nights sleep, although we had a lovely time on our week to Gran Canaria, we were a bit unlucky with the apartment we chose to stay in as it over looked the commercial centre in Puerto Rico and the local disco/wine bars would start up at 11pm and go onto 4am in the morning making one hell of a racket, so no one could get a decent nights sleep it vibrated up the sides a bit like an auditorium. The weather was fabulous and really hot and the apartment was beautiful as it had just been reburbished so we were very lucky but it was just the hell of a noise that spoilt it all for us.

This is the town from our Balcony, the disco/nightclubs are down in the centre.
I thought that you might like to see a few of the photos we took while away, and most of these were taken on our boat trip to Purto Morgan, which was along the bay from the place we were staying, its really beautiful as you can see from two of these photos theres lots of gorgeous flowers hibiscus and bouganvilla, overhanging balconies and people houses, its a marina with loads of yachts in with all these old looking houses that surround it, though I dont believe they are actually old but they do look lovely and in character with the place.
The last photo is one of several scenes that have been created along an alley, we actually took a video of it but this is the only still I took, and this little lad really appeals to me with him holding his dads leg and a bucket of fish standing by the two of them, I think it must be all made from cement and sculptured into shape.
Anyway thanks for popping by and leaving me such lovely comments and Thank You Chris for the Award I will get back to visiting you in the next few days and hopefully even get around to creating some cards, at the moment tomorrow I have a stack of ironing to do and some alterations to do for some neighbours so I might be a bit late getting around to see you all. So take care,

Welcome back Shirley it sounds (and looks by the pictures) as if you've had a lovely time and yes!! I bought about four or five What-a-mess books and actually put in link in, on a post ages back. Being a rubbish reader, I was determined that my girls would love books and read before they went to school, and those books were fab, I loved the art work with some many little things to find! Have a great week,
