Firework Show

July 16 is the day of the Virgen del Carmen, or the day of the Virgin Mary as patroness of the Carmelite Order. She also happens to be the patroness of the Spanish Navy, and so Tenerife, being an island, holds a festival on the beach for her. We were able to hear the Ave Maria sung live and got to see the fireworks from our balcony.

This also means I now have a new camera.


It is as of yet, unnamed. Any suggestions are welcome.
