Union-Castle Line Dolly
wishes you a very Happy Christmas 2020
and a safe and healthy New Year.
Dolly is sitting on a piece of fabric that I bought many years ago in Stockholm, in Sweden. It shows shipping line names, flags and funnel colours (including Union-Castle Line) that will probably be familiar to many.

Friday 29th September 2017 At 8 a.m. today we arrived alongside in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The sky was again gloriously blue and we had time for breakfast before preparing to disembark at 9.30 a.m. In port I could see the Fred. Olsen Express BONANZA EXPRESS arriving and subsequently offloading her vehicles and passengers. The mountains, both near and far, looked clear and fascinating.

The ship's clocks were put back last night and maybe this was why there seemed to be few other passengers around for breakfast as we headed for the Glass House. There was time to photograph the Beach Houses in the Snack Shack which looked fun, plus other things, before disembarking from our Discovery 2 and walking along the quayside and round to the other side of the bay.
