Sky, Ethel and Constance In Lanzarote

It seems like Summer is finally over but here are Sky, Ethel and Constance to remind you of warmer times.
The intrepid threesome pack their carry on luggage. There is no time to waste at the airport waiting for luggage on the conveyor belt so they pack only the essentials.
One complimentary drink and a packet of nuts later and they are in Lanzarote.

 No sooner have they arrived at the hotel the girls hit the beach.
Brenda isn't really much of a sun worshiper so she strolls off in search of adventure but with the beating sun doesn't get very far.

Meanwhile Sky has overheated and finds a rock from which she can dive bomb into the pool.
 That was the plan but rocks can be slippy and she ends up close and personal with a relative of the cactus family.
 Fortunately Ethel witnessed the incident and comes to her rescue.

Constance meanwhile has secured a pink inflatable to match her outfit, with the help of a rather over friendly frog. The ladies are not amused, by the frog that is.
The following day the clouds have rolled in so the girls decide on a bit of sightseeing.

Their tour guide is having a hard time, the girls were not expecting such a big hike and are exhausted by the time they reach the summit. To be honest the tour guide hadn't expected it to take that long either.

As the sun goes down over Lanzarote the girls still have an hour to go before getting back to the hotel. "Now who's bright idea was this?" says Constance. Sky and Brenda merely sigh, it's going to be a long walk......

Thanks to Ems for the action packed pics. Nice work.

Herman the German in Cornwall

Herman the German has been on the move once more. Sophy has documented his trip with both photos and words. It looks as though it was a bit chilly !

Herman sets off on a rainy day to walk (or more like swim) through the mud to see Gribbin Daymark, which has saved many a  sailor's souls.  Herman hopes he won't need rescuing by anybody, though he might need a blow-dry when he gets home!
At last, somewhere to shelter.  He's thinking it might be best to stay there and let the humans tackle the steep stairs up the 84ft tower to the exposed roof!
Herman relaxes at an almost deserted Porthluney beach as dusk descends on the Cornish coast.
The next day, he decides to be rather more active and take a cycle ride along the Camel Trail cycle path from Padstow to Bodmin. 
Along the way, he stops for a well needed rest at a tiny railway halt, hidden amongst the greenery and almost unused. 

Herman visits the Eden Project, hoping that he can finish the holiday by warming up and drying off inside one of the tropical biodomes!

Bea and Marlene in the Far East

Holiday time for these lucky FTB's
 Bea is up bright and early doing her morning dips, she likes to keep in shape even when on holiday.
As she wonders down for breakfast she spots the tour group boarding the bus. She frantically yells at Marlene who is still snoozing to get a move on or they will be left behind.
Marlene is not good in the morning and somehow finds herself in the storage area of the hotel.

Bea manages to find her in the knick of time and drags her to the minibus.

They arrive at some beautiful ornamental gardens where they find a passerby to snap their photo.
Bea opts for the waterfall close-up even if it means getting a bit wet. Marlene is happy to keep her distance.
After a lot of walking the intrepid duo sneak a quick nap before rejoining the tour group. "They'll never miss us." says Marlene who is still reeling from the rude awakening this morning.

Not long after, they board the bus and head back to the hotel and revitalize with some snacks, ready for their next adventure.

Thanks to Dad and Ah-Kioeuk for taking the buddies on holiday to Indonesia.
