Wild seas, red flags, official warnings, and still people go in the water

Yet again emergency services had to take risks, helicopters had to be scrambled, and peoples' lives were endangered in seas that common sense might have been expected to dictate should be left well alone. Red flags mean "don't go in the water". Aropol has now issued an official request for people to obey the official warnings not just from the Met Office but from the police as well. As always, emergency rescues required for those involved in incidents that they should not have been involved in are likely to be charged.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
