A Coincidence And A Walk Through Tenerife Banana Plantations - 10 Photos
Ten photos from a walk we did in Tenerife in the Canary Islands - along the coast through some banana plantations. First though, the photos reminded me of a coincidence.
After the walk we were heading back to a small town and I said to Karin that we needed a map to see if there was anything interesting we may have missed. Within about 100 yards along the path, on the ground was - yes, a map. The one we wanted!
Anyway, back to the walk. At first there was a proper pathway between the plantations, though the bananas were well fenced off unless, that is ...
... you were a cockerel or chicken. They clucked away happily between the plants.
As we got higher, and the path more stony and uneven, we looked back and could see the hills had been terraced.
We were still close to the coast and some of the cacti had a good view.
The cliffs were black from the volcanic rocks ...
... and the sea was quite rough in parts looking down from on high.
However, a little further and there was a small idyllic beach of black sand and white waves against the blue of he sea.
The walk ended abruptly with a warning that the path ahead was dangerous. reluctantly we had to turn around but had the consolation of being able to see a way down to the beach in the photo above.
And, of course we had seen lots of bananas!
