... swim but the sea was freezing so he didn't stay in long! We also had a sangria demonstration ;). Thursday was a quiet day and Friday morning we went for a horse ride at a surprisingly nice place. Mike even rode in an English saddle like a champ! Saturday we toured around more of the island and Sunday we returned El Ray (sadly!) and hopped on a bus bound for Santa Cruz along with all the dressed up kids headed that way for Carnaval! Now we are in Santa Cruz for a few days until we ...
... castles dating back to the 1400's and new buildings with beautiful facades, it didn't feel like an island at all. This is the playground for Europeans to enjoy beach weather for summer holiday. With temps in the 60's, most people had on winter coats and hats! The wind was sharp coming off the water and the top deck of the bus nippy but it was the best place for pictures.
You'll see the bus rails or people in most of the ...
Last day but no rush as evening flight. We pack and tidy, make salad rolls for the journey out of left overs! We leave to complete the round trip of the island by heading south to Lis Gigantes.

Driving along the coast to Puerto de Santiago then a stop for afternoon coffee at Playa de San ...

After the snowfall last Thursday it was to icy to go on Friday, then a one way from south to north over the peak ruled out the weekend which meant today was our only chance. It didn't disappoint! We leave around 11.00 and are on the mountain road by 12.00. It's a very scenic climb with only a few clouds to start with however we stop at a mirador to take photos and the cloud just sweeps in obliterating ...
A relatively early start by 10.00 to arrive in La Laguna in time for the start of the local football match between. La Laguna and Lanzerote. It's in a much larger stadium than last week and the football is of a better standard, a league above, but it lacks the local atmosphere, the result 2-1 to the home side is a fair result. We wander back into town and explore the old capital. It has some fine 18th century buildings set in a perfect grid so flat and easy to follow! We stop ...
