Good bread, and Catalina

My bride and I are returning to paradise this next Friday. We stay at Bungalows Vepao on La Ropa,but had to fill in a few nights before we check in there. We chose the Catalina, knowing from previous years, that there was some construction next door at the Sotovento. So, we're not to disturbed when we get there......how much of a disturbance is the construction going to provide at the Catalina?
Also we like healthy bread. Anybody, know of a good bakery, that might have some whole grain loaves of bread.
Thanks everyone, we enjoy keeping up on Z while we're not there.

Cuattro Cyclo does great whole grain bread, and believe it of not, Mega Soriana. Look at their loaves that are on a separate table in front of the bakery. There is often a large variety and many are whole grain.

The noise? Well, the north tower of the Sotavento was pretty much gone this morning as we paddled by, but the parade of dump trucks full of debris is still passing by our house steadily.

They are working on the remaining tower.

I think it's safe to say that sometimes the construction/demolition is loud enough to be heard at Las Gatas, and sometimes it isn't.

I thought you lived down around the corner from Los Delfines. Why are dump trucks passing by your house? Are they dumping in La Huerta?

Yup, just past los delfines.

The dump trucks start while we are still out on the water and end about 6pmish. They have eased up un poco, pero hay muchas para todo el dia. The trucks appear to dump their loads part way up the new airport road, where we can see them.

The "north" tower appears to be gone as of this morning, but the trucks continue.

WTF knows???

Thanks SO much for your pet comments as to our beach. Abrasos to you both!!!

It looks like they must be digging some sort of foundation because everything I've seen lately is just regular fill.

I have followed a couple of these dump trucks from Sotavento and they were dumping not too far away from where the new road meets up with the highway to the airport. For awhile they were coming onto the road that runs below our home. I gave one of the dump truckers a piece of my mind once and the frequency with which they come down there seems to have decreased.

We like to get our loaves of bread from Las Palmas bakery in town.
