The King of the World

Newer Older

Some facts about the Canary Islands: we belong to Spain but are located off the coast of Africa, close to Morocco and the Sahara Desert. There are seven islands in the archipelago and, right now, we are in Tenerife. The island of Tenerife is home to the highest mountain in Spain, the majestic volcano El Teide.

This is a sculpture, on the beach, of a paper boat. And this is Diego, my 5 year old middle child.

    What a wonderful idea, to pose a child on a paper boat. His red shorts give me a hint of Superman, as he poses, perhaps pretending that he's flying.
