Too busy to Blog

I'm currently over the hills and far away, celebrating my 80th birthday in style in the wonderful Canary Islands, so not much time for posting anything much on this Blog. For the time being, here is where I am and what I'm doing:

Found this bottle of bubbly in our hotel room when we arrived back from our day
 in the hills, courtesy of the management. We'll come here again!
On top of the world, 2,426m up at the Roque de los Muchachos, La Palma
I'm told they have clear skies here on 350 nights per year for star-gazing

A more comprehensive report in a week's time. Meanwhile I'm too busy enjoying myself,
 running, walking, swimming and soaking up the sun.
