If it's not safe the sign at the car park should be taken down then. Save curious people trailing down for nothing. No intention of swimming just having a look.

Let's all have a laugh / Helga's CRUISE SHIP DIARY

 Helga’s
CRUISE SHIP DIARY
DEAR DIARY DAY 1 -

All packed for the cruise ship
-- all my nicest dresses, swimsuits, short sets.
Really, really exciting.  Our local Red Hat chapter -
The Late Bloomers decided on this "all-girls"
trip.  It will be my  first one - and I can't
wait!
DEAR DIARY DAY 2-

Entire
day at sea, beautiful.  Saw whales and dolphins.
Met the Captain today -- seems like a very nice
man.
DEAR DIARY DAY 3
At
the pool today.  Did some shuffleboard, hit golf balls
off the deck.  The Captain invited me to join him at
his table for dinner.  Felt honored and had a wonderful
time.  He is very attractive and attentive


DEAR DIARY DAY 4

Won
$800.00 in the ship's casino.  The Captain asked me
to have dinner with him in his own cabin.  Had a
scrumptious meal complete with caviar and
champagne.   He asked me to stay the night, but I
declined.  Told him I could not be unfaithful to my
husband.

DEAR DIARY DAY 5
Pool
again today.  Got sunburned, and I went  inside to
drink at piano-bar, stayed there for rest of day.  The
Captain saw me, bought me several large drinks.  Really
is quite charming.  Again asked me to visit his cabin
for the night.  Again I declined.  He told me, if
I did not let  him have his way with me, he would sink
the ship...  I was SHOCKED

DEAR DIARY DAY 6
Today I saved 2600 LIVES .........TWICE

Let's all have a laugh / The Obedient Italian Wife
« Last post by Edward Bear on July 07, 2017 »
 
The Obedient Italian Wife!
 
There was an Italian immigrant man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real "miser" when it came to his money.
 
 Just before he died, he said to his Italian wife..."When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the after life with me."   And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.
 
Well, he died.   He was stretched out in the  casket, his wife was sitting there dressed in black, (what else), and her best friend was sitting next to her.
 
When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertaker got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a moment!"   She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket.
 
Then the undertaker locked the casket down and they rolled it away. So her friend said, "Girl, I know you were not fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband."

The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm an Italian Catholic and I cannot go back on my word.   I promised him that I was going to put that money in the casket with him.."

"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him??" "I sure did," said the wife.   "I got it all together, put it into my account, and I wrote him a cheque....If he can cash it, then he can spend it."
 
AMEN!

If you like a fresh water pool we always use the lido by the pabladlo mariero apartments but it is not always open due to the weather and sea

Perhaps try this option it is sheltered and safer

Yes, I was thinking that. A sneaky way of checking for illegal lettings.

Yes, have seen that. Noticed that for tourists to benefit from free WiFi they have to register and state their Nationality and also give details of accommodation. Maybe some owners in residential complexes exempt from letting will not be too happy about their guests doing that!!

Interesting article on www.janetanscombe.com about the Tenerife Government rolling out pilot Free WiFi in main tourist areas, including Santiago del Teide. It seems the project is going to be rolled out over the coming year.

It's locked for a reason. People get washed out to sea from the pool and drown. It's the Atlantic Ocean it has big waves and strong under currents. Back in March/April several people were washed out of the pool and it took several days to recover all the bodies. Swim their at your peril.
