The Fifth Pine is a popular expression that has ended up being used to define a place that is far away. But today we refer, not to the expression, but to therestaurant El Quinto Pino, which is in the municipality of Fuencaliente, in the south of La Palma. It is not that far away from anything, but it is a place to get lost. To lose sight of your worries and see everything from a different perspective.
Lately many of our walks and adventures end up in Fuencaliente. Every time we go there, Fuencaliente has a lot to offer! So - as we have all the time in the world - instead of getting caught up in talking about several places at the same time, we are going to take it easy, corner by corner.
It's been a while since we've been to this restaurant. What a big mistake! It won't happen again! Our plan came about after seeing a poster on the networks announcing:"Chillout atmosphere, sunset, tapas, cocktails, and the participation of Victoria, the troubadour of the south, magical and intense poetess". I admit that although I was looking forward to the plan, I was a little sceptical about the whole "magical and intense poetess" thing, but I said: "Well, at least they warn us, and he who warns is not a traitor. Let's get carried away and see what it's all about".
At around seven-something in the evening we got there, with our bodies both tired and relaxed, still covered in salt after a great day at the beach. It can be said that we were going with a predisposition to enjoy ourselves. And this is very important. With the passing of time I have come to realise that, in almost any situation, they can offer you gold and silver or the stars and the moon, but if you don't go with an open mind and predisposition, nothing good is going to happen! This may sound like a very silly thing to say, but even so, remember it and keep it in mind.
Our little island is beautiful in all seasons, and each of them has its charm. But summer is, without a doubt, our favourite. There is something special about summer that makes everything seem more cheerful, more fun, more colourful, brighter, more appetising ...
And speaking of bright and appetising things, today seemed like a good day to open a bottle of a good white wine from La Palma and inaugurate the summer season at V. V. La Palma. Enjoying our glasses, we toasted to the summer while contemplating the city from our privileged chill out viewpoint.
