Hello dear friends,

We've just finished the october retreat. The weather was very lovely which means in fact very hot with very warm nights just as last year when I finally decided to buy a mobile airco because of the terrible heat in our room (south off course ;-)

Please enjoy the pictures below..

One of the first days of the retreat we were so happy to meet these beautiful creatures of nature. It was a real gift, they were crossing the road, we could almost touch them, they came all down from the mountains continuing gently to the goat farm.

In the meanwhile our little Oscar was so unhappy to hurt himself badly (an open wound in his neck) = vet visit and this horrible thing around his neck for more than a week and (grr) antibiotics.. till now we couldn't find out how it happened. Luckily he's better now, good old Oscar is back ;-) jumping and running... On the photo below he needed a bit of love and understanding...

When we meditate, we off course go Jeep driving in the sand ;-) and then walk down to be as near as we can to the water (what an exercise ;-)

The magical colors of Los Hervideros, one of the island most beautiful sites...

A meditation near to one of the 'natural pools' with stunning views...

Oh, euh, no we don't need to meditate all the time, do we ?

One of Cesar Manrique's favorite spots were the mountains of Famara.. It nearly turns into a mystic place when the clouds move on over the mountains.

We had a nice walk to one of the most stunning beaches from the island called Papagayo with clear blue water and sandy beaches. The whole site is protected by Unesco.

Another fabulous walk till the 'center' of a volcano, I couldn't ever describe the feeling you have when you enter in the crater...


Another walk around a Volcano named 'Montana Roja' I suppose you will ask yourself why? ;-)

And then there were... dolphins... As an additional excursion and for those who don't suffer from sea sickness off course, we now propose to go on 'dolphin' or 'whale' spotting'. As they have a large 'playground' you are never sure to meet them but this time we were extremely lucky to see a lot of them, playing around the boat, jumping and following us, it was an incredible experience which words could never ever describe...

You are already so lucky to see them, you try to make this one shot of the sunset and you are so blessed to have one of them jumping in front of you, making this sunset even more special...

See you soon... Wednesday the 17th i'm leaving for Belgium, looking forward to see my belgian friends !

Al màànden volg ik deze blog met héél veel interesse maar dat was niets in vergelijking met wat ik nu voel als ik hem lees; ik was er zélf bij en het gevoel is gewoon onbeschrijfelijk; in het Engels zouden ze zeggen : "I'm over the moon" !!!!! Dank jullie wél Mona en Joëlle voor deze onvergetelijke ervaring ! XXX !
