Hi brian, the man is selling Spanish lottery tickets and he is there most days.
The algae? This is the feces. Shame on the authorities of Tenerife for trying to hide the truth about the catastrophic state of the wastewater facilities in Tenerife and lying about the algae and climate warming.
Don't think I'd swim in there, all the algae in the water. Maybe that's why the beach is so empty?
what is the man selling
2 weeks n we'll be there.
It's about 16:30 (local) and there people just packed in on the beach and it looks like they sent a 'statue of the Madonna' out to sea? Some kind of festival?
This is my idea of a nightmare. Patch of black sand crammed with people trying to sunbathe amid dozens of parasols and no room to move. At least it must be warm which I do envy sitting here in a rather chilly UK.
Hello to the couple waving Tuesday night look as if you are having fun
What a different sight to yesterday. Yes, Gert, they were packed like sardines. I am pleased to see that all the garbage has been picked up. Sharron - South Africa
Oh my look at all of the garbage the people left. I hope someone comes along pretty soon to sweep it all up?
Holy cow, they are packed in like 'sardines'. Not my idea of fun.
From http://therealtenerife.com/about-tenerife/fiestas-on-tenerife/Puerto de la Cruz is the place to be as the Dia de la Embarcación (usually the Tuesday closest to 16 July) forms part of the town’s fiestas patronales which last throughout most of July. There’s partying the whole day before the ‘Virgen’ goes on her little trip late afternoon/early evening.
Not sure what is going on today but found this article which, when translated to English, gives a slightly hilarious and totally confusing story. Wonder what an 'accidental mayor' is?http://www.laopinion.es/tenerife/2017/07/11/virgen-carmen-une-norte/792148.html
