Impressions of December

on our way to Arrecife, in the background some of the volcanic peaks
our stay sail, which is hard to see as we tried to sail in this situation with both fore sails

a little farmers market every Saturday in Arrecife next to the church
the pedestrian area in town
x-mas swans at the marina Lanzarote
“Puente de las Bolas”, is one of the symbols of Arrecife. It was built in the 18th century, a drawbridge, which along with its cannons was the key in keeping pirats and other raiders out. Today it leads its way to the Castle …

beach of Arrecife
the view to the beach from the other side, a mile behind the high rise (I think that is the only high we’ve seen so far) is the marina

One more pic from our dear, crazy Canadian friends Shelley and James,
Orzala, the town at the northern tip of the island
the little harbour , very difficult to enter
El Capitano happy, knowing he was getting lunch soon
at the “mirador del Río” with the view to La Graciosa and the other small islands north west of Lanzarote
one can see the little harbour ” Caleta de Sebo” La Graciosa. We anchored further west in a bay which one can’t see🤷‍♀️
the east end of Graciosa
at the north west coast watching south
Las Salinas de Janubio …
in the south west part of Lanzarote
I think that was as well a sculpture from Manrique at the shop of the Salinas
crazy rural landscape heading up to El Golfo
with tough waves on one side
and volcanic peeble
on the other side
reaching El Golfo
the beach “Charco del los Clicos”
with its famous “Charco verde” it is a small green lake, formed in the crater of an old volcano. It owes its colour to some algae which grow there. BUT one can’t see it in this pic🤪 it is behind the red rock in the middle
the beach again
in our back there is the lake 🤣, don’t know why we missed to take a photo of it
on our way back to Arrecife somewhere in the middle of the island “San Bartolomé”
