The other day we visited Fariones Hotel in Lanzarote, outside the entrance was a beautiful nativity scene. This time of the year these scenes are found throughout the island.

This one is very large and filled with incredible detail. The scene shows life as it was in rural parts however, in some areas it is still similar even today.

Many of the model buildings are based on full size properties found in villages scattered throughout the island

This island is volcanic and the lava stones are used in traditional buildings and dry stone walls. The ground is covered with pecon, which is pulverised larva stone. This is used throughout the island to keep the heat from the land. Every garden has pecon to cover the surface and to protect the roots of the plants.

I have made an amateur short video of the scene which I hope you will enjoy watching.

 Thank you for taking the time to stop by and I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

Best wishes

Who Am I?

I am a Yorkshire lass, but have lived in several different locations including over the years; Suffolk, Surrey and Holland. Today, I live on the beautiful volcanic island of Lanzarote with my husband and our two gorgeous rescue doggies.

Years ago I gained a BA (Hons) degree from the Open University, today I spend my time writing fiction. I have four books published, plus a 20 minute short festive story. I am busy working on book 5 which is scheduled to be published in 2014.

My passion is to write about events that happen in life and change everything for those involved as well as those caught up in the maelstrom. I want my characters to sit at your side, steal your attention and sweep you up in their story. Stories that will bring tears to your eyes, have you laughing out loud and sometimes, what they share with you, will stay in your hearts for a very long time.

I am also the girl behind those other bubbly glasses who runs the exciting new and dynamic Indie Author site Famous Five Plus. To find out all about what happen at Famous Five Plus visit www.famousfiveplus.com
