We loved this photo taken in El Medano. It literally means "Life is better in flip-flops"

Yes it is!

The giant Waterpark Siam-Park which is one of our closest neighbours at Club Olympus, has opened a brand new shopping Mall.

This new development is packed with shops, bars and restaurants. Very tastefully done, it makes for a very handy one-stop shopping trip.

Again it has a Thailand based theme throughout in a similar fashion to Siam-Park and really is a beautiful place to visit. A lovely feature is that all the ceilings are made with gorgeous wooden beams, pillars and panelling. It must have cost a fortune to build it.

It certainly gives the place a very relaxing atmosphere that is assisted by lots of water and fountains. Now I (Ivan) am not a great one for shopping but I know that many of you are. Situated right next door to Siam-Park, Siam-Mall is a terrific shopping experience.

And it's right next door!!!!

As you know, we at Club Olympus love a good sunset and we are blessed with spectacular sunsets on a regular basis here in Tenerife. Last night, walking on the seafront with my wife, we enjoyed the sun setting behind the nearby island of La Gomera.

This photo was taken on the seafront just in front of the 'Mare Nostrum' hotel in Playa De Las Americas last night.

Beautiful!

The blue waters of the Atlantic beckoned yesterday and the weather was perfect for some fishing. I set off from Puerto Colon (pictured below) on Jamie Hinson's 'Happy Hooker'.

 As we powered away from the Marina, we had a fabulous view back towards Tenerife. You can clearly see Mount Teide in the distance. It wasn't too long before we had rods in the water and we were concentrating on tight lines.

 

We caught a host of Mackerel which are generally our bait fish as we hunt for bigger stuff. Before long one of our number hauled out this beautiful 'Smooth Hound'

He was returned safely to the sea as we weren't particularly after him. We caught several Stingrays which also went back in they too are not our target.

I caught amongst other things, a pretty Green Puffer fish (or Tambale Verde as they are called here). They are normally found in much deeper water and are a primary food for Marlin.

 

After a great afternoons fishing, including seeing our sister boat 'The Crested Wave' land two big Albacore Tuna, we headed back to Port, satisfied, sunburnt and safe.

The best bit comes at last when I tot up my catch and see what we are going to have for supper!

Some lovely Mackerel and Sea Bream to go on the Barbie! Marvelous.

Here are some shots taken by me (Ivan Rhodes of Club Olympus) just to remind you about what you are missing at the moment here in Tenerife!

A favourite Restaurant of ours is Othello's right at the top of Adeje, just before the start of the famous Barranco Del Infierno walk. They specialise in spicy chicken, terrific wine and incredible views of the mountains and the sea. Pictured above is Gabby Rhodes (left) who is part of our entertainment team along with her sister Domi. Othello's also supply one of Tenerife's worst kept secrets, pictured below is the Barraquito Liquor Coffee made with Spanish tipple Licor 43!

Several people who love this particular coffee are our In-House team consisting of Dawn, Sue and Tony happily smiling in the next shot!

The weather has been a bit cooler in the early part of February than we are used to but has picked right up again and we are back glorious blue skies and heat again.

As always, food is a great topic of interest to us here in Tenerife and I just had to grab a shot of our mixed giant prawn platter that we had recently at Restaurante Masia Del Mar in La Caleta. It was seriously good enough to eat!

It was absolutely outstanding although I can't vouch for it being super healthy with all the other stuff that went alongside it!!

 And a quick sunset taken from the resort to finish off this little snippet!

 

See you soon!
