Cowart's Common Room

Got back from a fortnight in Tenerife last night. I did not tell you about it because I am always aware that anyone in the world can read this. For a while I thought we might not be able to go as my knee conked out, but the physio and I, between us, got it stabilised and going much better. Using crutches and not driving helped. My poor OH had to drive me to physio, eye man appointments and do all the shopping. He was golden good and did not complain once!
We stayed on the north side of Tenerife, in Puerto de la Cruz. It was a brilliant hotel founded by a German gentleman and now run by his 2 daughters and son. The personal service and attention to detail was unbeatable. It is the Tagaida Hotel, situated above the Town centre and with a lovely garden and on the edge of a park with lots of tracks, used by joggers, so the walking was smooth for me.
The only drawback was that the north of the island is usually at least 4C lower than the south with quite a lot of cloud and a wind much of the time. The great benefit is that the tourists are nice and quiet - not the inebriated type to be found on the south!!
I have not had a proper look at the few pictures that I took, but if there is anything worth showing, I will put it/them up later.

Tiggywinkle's Avatar Withy,It is a great time of year to have a holiday, and then come back in time for Spring in the garden. Hope your knee is holding up well, and not too painful. I think you should post this also, in the travel forum, as it is useful to have the name of a hotel and location.
