Project Life (catching up): Mogán

The Mom Creative
Linking up as ever with the lovely Jessica!  This week I'm getting back to the day by day photos, but this is a catch up post, with pictures from our lovely trip to the Canaries a few weeks back.  Feels like an age ago (moving house will have that effect!).

Ah, so that's how I look after plenty of sunshine and sleep! 

Frosty cool beer on a hot Canarian day?  Bliss.

We had a stash of coins for playing poker (Matthew taught me how to play Texas Hold-Em while we were away) - here M used them to make a portrait of me!

The local beer in the Canaries is called Tropical and we got this cool bag with purchase.  Hence the emergence of...Tropical Man!  My boy is so silly :-).

Always great to spend time by the sea!

Mogán, as we returned on the boat from Puerto Rico.

Bluest sky.

Matthew happily installed on the balcony, reading The Economist in the sunshine.  Happy boy!

Wine in a carton that costs 57 cents?  You have to buy it, surely?

View of the mountains from our balcony.

Fingal and Florence made the return trip to Mogán with us.

This cat was so cute and friendly!  I'm a sucker for a kitteh - I was spotting them all week!

Such a wonderful trip, and some nice photos to add to my Project Life book!  Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has been up to!

  1. Fab photos - I'm still laughing at Tropical Man!

  2. Tropical Man scares me (but then most things do). Glad you had fun!

  3. That looks like you two had a blast.

  4. Looks like so much fun! All the pictures of you, including Coin-You, are so wonderful.

    Next time I visit, Tropical Man had better be there is all I have to say.

    So, tell me all baout the 0.57 wine... Does it have a complex bouquet with an elegant and refined finish? IT MUST!


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
