Las Palmas to Cruz de Tejeda on Gran Canaria

This afternoon we rented a car and drove up into the center of Gran Canaria. We are staying at the Parador Cruz de Tejeda. It feels like we are at the very top of the island. We have magnificent views in every direction.

This morning we walked to El Corte Inglés department store. They have a post office where we bought stamps and mailed a couple of post cards. Then we went to their restaurant and had a bit of breakfast.

We wanted to have a picnic dinner tonight so we bought food in El Corte Inglés grocery store.

When we arrived at the Parador this was waiting for us in our room.

Here is our picnic dinner.
