Good Morning Linkers wherever you are, this is Princess Diana continuing my theme from Gran Canaria although we are now back in the much cooler NE.
The geography of this volcanic island varies greatly, from huge dunes in the South, according to legend blown in from the Sahara, to cliffs plunging over 1500 feet into the ocean not good to look down if you suffer from vertigo. The fertile North boasts vast tracts of banana plantations and tomato sheds, which from above almost look like lakes as they tend to be covered in with plastic or glass fibre sheeting. The South tends to be much sunnier which is why most of the tourist places are in the South. There seems to be little rain here and most of the reservoirs are very low but the ‘picon’, (small black granules of volcanic ash) absorb moisture from the atmosphere over night which keeps the native plants watered. In places of intense agriculture watering has to be done otherwise there wouldn’t be any beautiful flowers or golf courses for that matter. There are many weird and wonderful rock formations, some manmade but others just weather worn. One can climb up to most of them if one has the energy, I declined because of my false hips – well they make a good excuse!

Gran Canaria was first inhabited sometime between the 5th. and 7th centuries AD by the Berber people from North Africa and their primitive dwellings can be seen close to the shores. It wasn’t until about the 15th C that the Spanish invaded and took over these islands.
Some holiday makers prefer to stay in one place but we like to get out and about. The town markets are great fun especially the ones which are really for the locals, where everything you could think of will be on sale. At one market we saw a local demonstrating a prickly pear cutter. The prickly pear when ripe has a lovely dark red, if pippy, flesh but you wouldn’t want to harvest them without some protection – they are not called prickly without reason!! Himself went looking for his golf ball and I had to spend sometime getting the very tiny sharp prickles out of his sweater and his skin that evening!!
We had an apartment, which meant that we could make our own breakfast and sandwiches for lunch if necessary, but could enjoy the delights of the local restaurants, of which there were many. Every type of cuisine is available, but we enjoyed the Italian the best – because that’s what we like anyway!
As I found to my cost, the sun can be deceptive especially if there is a wind blowing.
We had a rare day ‘at home’ and after a walk along the sands at Maspalomas, I decided to sit in the sun by the pool. Big mistake! Whilst my arms and legs had got used to the sun and I had a good tan there, the rest of me hadn’t and I ended up very red and sore. I won’t do that again in a hurry!

According to normal practice, for the everyday running of MM, I shall follow this rule on word length, in that each of my pre-selected link words contains at least four letters and at most eight letters. Stray outside this range and you will be wasting one of your attempts!

Each of the selected link words may go in front of, or behind my challenge word.
The competition will officially close on Sunday Evening at 7.00pm, when gen2 will declare my pre-selected words and then apply the same rules for awarding points that have been applied during all MM Link Games in the past. My set of four words to have their links predicted should appear below at 9.00am.
Good morning everyone. There are so many themes it could be today !!!
