Canary Islands part 5: All Aboard!


Make this clear. We are not cruise people. I have been on two in the past two years, and I have a very love-hate thing about them. And I do want to do more. Now that, that has been established, lets Go!!!!

Getting on a cruise ship is always exciting. You know walking onto the ship the next few days there will be no reason to think. The food is there. The alcohol is there. The big boat transports you to different ports where you saunter off to the touts waiting and hoping.

On board! Grab a chair and a beer.

It was just three days before Terri-Lynn’s Birthday. We were ready to leave Gran Canaria for the next island of Tenerife. That evening was the typical dinner seating, some entertainment and a romantic night under the moon.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
