For quite a few years after we met we took an annual holiday in Gran Canaria and another someplace else. We liked Gran Canaria because it was relaxed and gay friendly. It was also relatively inexpensive, being a tax free island, was usually very hot and had the most wonderful beaches where James could built his particular style of sandcastle. He took great pride in these and often spent hours constructing them. I lent a hand but he was undoubtedly the architect. The end results usually looked like something straight out of the science fiction fantasy novels he loved to read.
