César Manrique House Museum Haria - From 1988 until his death in September 1992 César Manrique lived and worked in what is now César Manrique House Museum, Haria. The artist moved to this quite town looking for inspiration to create and paint and do what he loved best. He started renovations on this house in 1986 recycling and adapting a run down farmhouse which he had bought in the early 1970's. You enter the house via the Lemon Tree Courtyard and then just follow your nose, its an amazing house and you see it as it was lived in by César Manrique. The living area is amazing, in fact everything about the house is amazing. Just visit and you will see what I mean. We were not allowed to take photographs of the inside which means you will have to go and see for yourselves. There is a small entrance fee, sorry can't remember what we paid, but I know it wasn't much.

So last week being my first week of retirement we gathered some friends and went walking in Timanfaya to the Caldera del Islote de la Vega. We parked at El Golfo then set off back up the road a few hundred metres then took the track into the wilderness. Along the way we walked past a house and were met with a charging donkey. Thank goodness there was a wall between him and us, he moved at a hell of a pace.
You can see the volcano behind us, the climb to the top was very steep but keeping the pace slow we all made it to the top.
Once we had all caught our breath we headed down into the crater and out the other side. We continued down a dirt track until we came to a black sandy beach where we had lunch. Time to climb again and this time the walk took us up and along the cliff top back towards El Golf. The last part of the walk is not hard but its rocky and seems to go on forever. You really do need a good pair of walking boots for this bit. Thanks Mick for being our guide today.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to all my lovely friends who signed my retirement card. Jackie did a grand job and collected so much money she was able to buy the new Apple watch 2 as my leaving present. Was I blown away or what!! . Completely taken by surprise with the party on Monday, didn't have a clue, again this was down to Jackie, thanks mate. I feel very proud to know you all and a simple thank you doesn't sound enough for the lovely words in the card and the present. As I said on Facebook Overwhelmed is an understatement. Thank you all x x x x

So probably the biggest news story this month is that Wendy is finishing work at Reiners pub. Wendy has worked at Reiners on and off for approximately 9years and with me officially retiring this year she has decided to hang up her apron. Its been a lot of years since Pierre then Peter & Anita had the bar, along with Wendy and of course Jackie they have made it a very popular place to meet for a beer and have a good laugh.
So as from the end of September the Wendy burger will cease to exist but with luck the new young lady whoever she may be will do as good a job, its not easy working a busy bar and restaurant so please give her time to settle in.
