    Saturday 11th December and we were driving
    along the TF-28 from San Eugenio in the the direction of San Miguel de Abona. Along the way we stopped at this well constructed stone built viewpoint.

    Having parked up we climbed the stone steps up to the highest point of the Mirador where a tall wooden cross stands. It looks as if there had been a recent celebration of a festival or feast day as there were remnants of decorations around the cross.

    From here were treated to a 360 degree panoramic view of the area. The views stretched from Valle de San Lorenzo across to Roque del Conde and San Miguel. We could see as far as the Montaña Roja Nature Reserve and the Montaña de Guaza Natural Monument.

    It is easy to list out place that can be seen from here, the best thing is to visit here and experience the stunning far reaching views

    There is a restaurant and café here but it is rather apparent that it has not been open for some time. Not sure if it is closed due to COVID restrictions or economic reasons.

    Memorial to the victors in the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39, erected after WW2. 25 metres high, consisting of stone crosses with some scuptures (allegories) in the basement part. Personally, I don't like the structure.

    This small bronze statue of a horse mackerel is located along a street in the centre of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

    The statue stands on a large stone shaped stone, with a plaque attached to it. It was surrounded by colourful flowers.

    In Spanish the fish are called Chicharreros. Historically, it was also a derogatory term used by the the nearby City about the people of Santa Cruz. Back in the day it was a small fishing village with poor inhabitants, their main diet was Chicharreros, small low quality cheap.

    There is another statue  known as Homenaje Al Chicharrero (People of Santa Cruz), this outside the Mercado de Nuestra Señora de África.

    Walking on the promenade we found the amazing little church and this little statue besides. It's a lovely place on a busy walk. Nothing special about the statue, awesome the church and the view. 👍👍

    There were ground keepers cleaning up the place today. The fog was rolling in and out. Easy to see how this accident happened. Spooky to see the aircraft down below taking off into the fog.

    Sunday 12th December we were sightseeing and exploring in Puerto de la Cruz.

    While walking along the seafront, pedestrianised Avenida de Christobel Colón, we spotted this unusal structure outside Lago Martianez (Water Park).

    Initially it looked as if this was the creation of an eccentric inventor, a form of windmill made with old fashioned ear trumpets stuck on a tree stump.

    We learnt the it was a mobile sculpture named Los Alisios, which translates as Trade Winds. It was the creation of the famous artist, sculptor and architect César Manrique, from Lanzarote. His works can be seen throughout the  Canary Islands.

    Located down Calle Hermano Pedro De Bethencourt in Los Christianos is Planets Memorial, a wonderful looking monument my twin brother Stephen and I passed as we were wandering around this part of town.
    I think its made from concrete and iron ,its so cool looking, very photogenic, the planets look fab ,it's just a really good monument, most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

    Located along the paseo of Playa De Los Christianos is a wonderful set of statues that at first glance looks like a set of randomly placed large smooth stones ,they look cool but seem to represent nothing in particular, a bit of googling revealed Cetaceos Statue to be a representation of sea creatures such as whales and dolphins .
    Using the pavement as a representation of the sea the stones suddenly take on the shape of whales or dolphins breaching the water,that was my interpretation anyway, see what you make of it its easy to locate along with Avenida De Playeros in Los Christianos just off the beachfront.
    Most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.

    My twin brother Stephen and I were exploring around the wonderful Los Christianos area,taking in the sites,hopping into various cafe's, pubs,bars and restaurants and generally just enjoying our eight days holiday in this sun drenched resort, November weather was awesome, temperatures in the mid 90's, we found ourselves near Plaza De Pescador which houses the beautiful Centro Cultural, in my opinion one of the stand out structures in this area of Tenerife, in front of this grand building is a wonderful statue of a boy fishing.
    The statue is well detailed, it shows a boy reeling in a net ,its pretty, very photogenic and makes for some great photographic opportunities and adds to the joy of visiting Centro Cultural and Plaza Del Pescador.
    Most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area of Los Christianos.

    In the heart of Playa De Las Americas and surrounded by pubs,bars and restaurants is a fabulous statue of a dancing couple that certainly caught my eye.
    It's a rough looking statue,abstract in design ,strangly photogenic, the statues depict a couple dancing ,the work of Yamil Omer and unveiled in 1985 ,I loved it ,there's a padlock attached to one of the figures, not sure this was added by the sculptor or by a random passer by so I don't know the significance of the padlock, to me it's just a great piece of street art, most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate in Playa De Las Americas.
