A Holiday in Los Christianos, Tenerife - 19th June 1985

The Old Man and Maureen take Nosher and Sis over on a Monarch flight to the island of Tenerife, on the Canaries, to the fishing village-cum-building site that is Los Christianos. It included a trip to Pico del Teide - a volcano in the desert - in an area apparently used for some of the filming of the original Planet of the Apes. There was some attempt to get to the top, but only Nosher made it as the rest baled out about 100 metres up from the cable car stop.
