I've actually managed to get off this Island for a well earned holiday.  Went to freezing cold London, but enjoyed every minute, the lights and atmosphere were superb.......but the prices  15 for 2 coffees and a couple of cakes!!!! and tourists complain of prices here!!

Give me a couple of days and the up to date pictures of the works will be posted.....there has been good progress.

Actually if any of you have seen the size of the cakes that Dolly puts away you would realise that 15 for 2 coffees and 2 of her gargantuan size cakes represents darn good value  - what she didn't explain was that she was eating alone :o

Some pictures of the works near the Barcello today.

A lot changed since we left in March and came back in November but not a lot in the 7 weeks we have been here since. I think there is still a lot left to do.

Looks like their building a sea flood barrier wall, guess the owners of those beautiful villas are so pleased!
Guess they never new that would happen when they purchased.

I don't think there is any risk of flooding at that height. What they have done is build out over the cliff edge to get a wide enough flat area for the path and make a barrier to stop people falling over. The zigzag concrete in the foreground is a wheelchair ramp I assume. Seems a bit OTT.

Thanks for the new photos Dolly, some good process but I'm disappointed they are still working at Calle Pino entrance as we are staying nearby in late January so hoping it will be finished by then otherwise we may have some early mornings!

We are staying on Calle Pino at the moment. Not that high up and the road works  are no problem whatsoever.  There  is a vague hum at times. Nothing at all to put us off sitting outside .

Thanks White Rose, we're staying about 3 houses up from the bottom so that's reassuring thanks. Hopefully they will be even further away by the end of January unless they are doing Calle Pino itself - anyone know this, or is it just the main roads? Thanks

Afraid I can't  help you with that. At the moment some of the bottom lefthand side is fenced  off as they are using it for storage. It doesnt go up as far as the second property so won't  be a hinderance to you  if it's  still there when you  arrive.
At the moment  the main topic of conversation is  sadly that Polly one of the four  parrots  has bern been missing for a week.

Going off subject  we are always interested in accommodation on Calle Pino, would you  point me in the direction  of the site you get yours from.  Thank you .

In answer to Paulaf - only the main road.  Rumour has it that now the money has run out so don't know when Flor de Pascua road works will ever finish!! This is worse than the English soaps!!

Thanks both, glad its only the main roads but hope it does all get finished one day. We've not stayed in this particular apartment before so I'll come back to you later if that's ok if I would recommend it but I usually look at HomeAway, booking.com and THA http://www.tha-tenerife.co.uk/

Where do the parrots normally live?

Thanks paulaf. Hope the new accommodation is to your liking.
The parrots I was referring to are the resident wild ones. They  have been here years.  You hear them squawking all the time as they fly over in formation.  There were several more than four when we first started coming here.
You will hear them all the time on Calle Pino.

Thanks we are really looking forward to coming and seeing some sun. Who do you normally book with please, can you send me any info? This January we stayed down in the marina so Calle Pino is new to us but seems very central. How long are you there for?

The parrots sound great we will enjoy seeing and hearing them, hope Polly reappears soon.

It is progressing but still a lot left to do. It needs a ramp at the hotel end as it currently ends about 2ft off the ground and it needs tiling all the way along the cliff. There are what look to be regular viewing points and they look like they will need glass balustrades.

Question for White Rose please - can you tell me who you booked your apartment with in Calle Pino if possible please? We really like ours but it's booked up already for next year so need other options. Many thanks
