Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14013

but I had a toasted sandwich and shared chips

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14112

The rest of the afternoon was spent on the beach, not sure if that was the tall chips challenger but I must be in the running by now lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14512

We as arrange to meet Jomark and his lovely wife from the Lanzarote forum and chatted for an hour over coffee's at momentos para llevars

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 15011

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 15111

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 15511

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 15610

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 16012

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 16312

It sure passed that bit of time waiting to go out to dinner which mean't I had to jump into the bath and get ready quicker

Tonight we ate first time in the Trattoria

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 16411

I had the mexican chicken, I think my chicken had lived a very long life but at 7.5 euro's a filling meal lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 16512

Day 7, Saturday

we awoke to hear the problems with air traffic control and hoped it would soon be sorted

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00120

for us it was another beach day

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00216

but by lunchtime it had clouded over

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00318

so we went up to Barney's for lunch, at this point I realised that I could be doing a review of the best burgers in town, so I thought I would have some thing more sensible

Lasagna  Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00615

Mrs Db had the tagatelli

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00516

Then it was football showing back at the apartment in the bar area

after which I needed some more groceries, now if you don't have things these are the sort of prices you will get locally

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00715

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01111

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01211

only a medioca sunset tonight

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01311

tonight we were dining at the Little Marmite at the ebd of the Marina

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01812

I had Lamb chops, maybe it was because I only had Lasagna earlier that it didn't seem quite so big to eat

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02011

Mrs Db had pork chops in a sauce

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02114

However, when the temptation came around for desserts, we buckled

The Crepes were to die for, I had chocolate sauce in mine

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02212

Mrs Db had lemon in her's

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02312

it has a nice atmosphere there, sitting semi outside undercover

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01911

After asking for the bill we did get forgotten but the lady gave us two measures of bailey's for our troubles.

Mrs Db was very cold by the time we reached our apartments not waiting for me to take a picture of the moon lol.

On arriving a text came through from jomark saying they would be at Vino Blanco at the marina if we wanted a nightcap, I had just taken a picture of that lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02412

Mrs Jomark had a cocktail that Delboy would have been proud of, except it didnt have any drambuie in it, infact it didn't have anything in it as she was driving

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02613

we chatted together for a hour and a half, it was nice to meet them both

Another day ended

Great stuff Del.
That Yaiza (sp ?) hotel, the pool looked pretty shady, what time of day did you take that picture?


Also, in the tabacs shop, the first pics, where those €5 & €6 for 200 ciggies?
The Superkings at €25.99, just to compare, are €42 in Majorca. Over £65 here, don't know exactly what they sell for.

Day 8, Sunday

from looking at Fuerteventura through the camera lens it was looking the clearest day so far and I was itching to go back up the volcano to get some new shots with my camera

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00121

Also there is a famous cake shop down at Faro Park that everybody talks of that I wanted to investigate. Mrs Db was going to have a morning around the pool whilst I attempt to get to the volcano by the no 30 bus this year

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00217

so it was a walk up to the roundabout from the marina to the bus stop

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00616

I had already spotted the bus stop times the previous day

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00716

The buses run to time here, as there is no traffic or rush hour

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00914

I had arranged to be back to Mrs Db for lunchtime and set off early, well 10am lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01113

I asked the driver to call out the nearest stop but he didn't, but it was fairly obvious

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01312

I recognised the Paradise Island hotel from the previous trip

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01410

then it is was basically head for the volcano which has several paths all leading into the same direction

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01813

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02115

I ended up going down this road

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02514

which sort of came into the pathway a little way up lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02614

The was no one ahead of me which is good for photographs

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02715

so just sit back and see the walk

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02812

looking down there was a party coming up, which would get in the way of the view

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02916

So this will give you an idea of what shoes to wear

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03013

I take a picture every so often

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03113

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03711

Hey, what happened to my little red stone I placed here 3 years ago

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03812

where did he come from lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03913

he's obviously not puffing as much as me

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04012

here we are at the top, wasn't too bad was it lol, as shot from 2001 (the film lol)

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04111

and the little white box

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05514

now the views, little disappointed with the angle of the sun and the strong wind blowing which was difficult to hold the camera steady sometimes, I think late afternoon would be better with the sun much lower

so a sweep across from the back of PB to the sea, I do have panoramic pictures which dont help the text so will do some seperately and link them in for those that can view them

I didn't look around their pool area lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08514

I think this is the Natura Palace

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08113

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08712

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08814

so heading towards the lighthouse end I needed to move on to the highest point

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 09314

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 09813

Fuerteventura wasn't in favour today due to the bright sunlight

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 10010

Last time I missed Faro Park, where a lot of villa's are for rent but you really need a car fot that location

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 10411

This is where the famous cake shop is that I will try and get to if I have time

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 10812

now could I save time and get inside the cake shop from here lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 11112

well at the highest point but no Hillary Tenzing book to sign here  Sad 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 11311

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 11211

It really stunning up here

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 11912

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 12211

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 12812

so one last look at Fuerteventura in the sunlight

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 13012

and the good shots I coundn't take

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 13114

and the last block of villa's at the very end

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 13313

then passed the piles of stones from walkers leaving their mark

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 13613

a quick walk down to the basement lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 13813

I don't know the sentiment behind this one but I hope my Rodneys feeding himself ok whilst we are away lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14014

Then quicker way down lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14411

Now If I was going to have lunch with Mrs Db I would have to forget Faro Park and perhaps go another day but after my descent I came out to the bus stop at the Natura Palace, only to find I had just missed a bus, with another 25 minute wait.

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 16811

So I popped over the otherside of the road to see what time the bus ran to Faro Park and one was due any minute. I quickly texted Mrs Db and said I'm going to Faro Park and perhaps have a cake there but Mrs Db would have a snack in the pool bar, so sorted

so here I am at Faro Park, looking for a cake lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 16913

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17010

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17111

I went up and down twice looking for the cake shop

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17212

but couldn't spot it, I even went into a supermaket asking for the famous cake shop, she pointed to a fridge at the front  Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17310

even thought of texting Jomark but it was his last day here

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17411

Then I saw the Lighthouse which has internet and printers facilities, not to be confused with the Lighthouse itself lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17510

I saw the turkey bagette

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17611

I think I ordered a christmas turkey thing but the lady said we only have on table left love, can I have it then, You go and sit down love and I'll tell you when it's ready. I sat at the table and others were being called and they came back with big dinners. Suddenly I saw a notice outside. Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17710

TEXT to Mrs Db, I think I have just ordered Christmas dinner  Shocked Lucky you came the reply, I havent had anything yet.

Well fortunately it was a carvery and you could help ourself to the potatoes etc, If I was an ex pat I would eat here every Sunday but the question was, could I eat this and still eat out tonight lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 17911

Across the table I spoke to two ex pats, asking them if they knew of the cake shop, "yes just two stores down", came the reply. How did I miss it twice Embarassed

The couple had lived here for a few years and I asked if they liked the life and they said the first few years was nice here but are now looking for a second place in the UK as they miss certain things over in the UK

Anyway rather full, the couple did suggested I walk back from the lighthouse, to burn it all off and buy Mrs Db a cake Shocked 

Anyway, here it is

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18410

too full to buy a cake

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18011

I approached the three ladies and said can I take pictures

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18111

what for they said, well just to show the forum

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18211

a lady arranged them together and said you really should comeback at 8am when the counters are loaded

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18310

anyway I said farewell to Faro Park and headed for the bus stop

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18510

a flat rate fare

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18710

and now heading back to Mrs Db, with the old proverb of "you can't have a cake or eat it too" ringing in my ears

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 18910

Mrs Db hadn't eaten anything, so I went to the apartment bar and ordered her a chicken toasted sandwich, well what else could I do

I think Mrs Db might fancy a cruise next year to keep me in lol, no sunset it had clouded over  Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 20110

tonight we ate inthe Tipico Canario on the harbour front

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 20211

I had chicken cordon bleu lovely light batter around it (lucky for me)

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 20410

and a nice run down to the sea edge if needed lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 20310

Mrs Db had peppered steak with the sauce in a separate bowl

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 20510

The house red was 9.25 euro's an nice evening

End of Day 8

Nice one Del, the volcano walk would be something I would have done if I was there, awesome views mind the resort below looked a bit baron. The whole area looked like the moon. Repped

Day 9, Monday

a bit of a wind today, not a beach day

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00122

a bigger disaster, the new jar of marmalade I bought turned out to be peach marmalade, well they looked the same on the jar  Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00219

the Armas ferry was getting a bit of a spray on it's front

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00517

but an easy choice to go for a walk

so heading towards papagaya I noticed another Japanese menu

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00915

also a crazy golf working that have not noticed before

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01013

So having done the walk last year, I cut short

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01212

but we are heading to the AI hotels area in the distance

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01411

so turning left here

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02012

passed the Dream Castillo

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02116

so now heading for Ropers that I heard about for their good meat and fish

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02213

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02414

cycle hire

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02813

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02615

just next to the cafe there is an archway into a square with a cafe in which is run by Ropers

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02716

inside they had a nice deli

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03114

the beef looked nice for those in villas doing barbeques

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03314

Our cereal was 30 cents cheaper here but not worth the long walk to get it

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03214

They also had a fish counter

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03414

the highlight of the morning was two lobsters having a barney but their claws were taped, however, perhaps they were being kepted for the big fight in the fish spa

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03514

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03712

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03914

and the booze

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03813

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04013

after the store browse we walked right to the back of town but apart from missing and cracked drain covers there was nothing exciting to report

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04917

Then it was a shelterd spot at Lani's snack bar

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06714

a chicken burger for me, not having the bacon lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07116

Mrs Db had another toastie

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07214

and the piranhas below finished the rest of my roll

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07715

I spent the rest of the afternoon watching Harry Potter and the black bellied prince or something like that lol

This evening we were going to try Cervantes in the high st opposite the church, it would be less windy

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08213

It doesn't have a sea view

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08414

I had fillet steak with peppered sauce and my steak cut like butter, delicous

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08515

Mrs Db has beef stroganoff, and the beef was fillet steak cut up, excellent she said

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08713

a lovely meal

and end of day 9

Day 10, Tuesday

batten down the hatches, it's not a beach day  Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00220

as far as I'm aware Fred Olsen was the only one to do a run, Thomson tours to Fureteventura had been cancelled

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00814

The red flag was out on the beaches

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01412

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01912

going into town for a walk

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02717

half the town's beach had got washed away

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02917

leaving a foot ledge and a destroyed sand dragon

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03115

quite windy on the front

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03215

so we looked at prices of drink in the tobacconist we usually exchange in

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03814

they seem fairly competitive against the others for honey rum etc

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03915

here is their little notice in place today for the 1.19 rate only applying to travellers cheques lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04014

where is Las Brisas, it's by the bus garage, lets go and look for that

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04214

Suddenly a lady leaped out from nowhere, are you British and friendly, well yes, don't worry I'm not selling you anything we are doing a special promotion and you might win a bottle of champagne or something, scatching off two tickets as she gave them to us. lol I of course had 4 flags the top prize but poor Mrs Db didn't win at all.

my ticket lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07514

Mrs Db

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07415

notice the bar that goes straight across the if remove void box on mine, whereas Mrs Db loing ticket the bar stops at the void box lol which indicates a winning ticket to the provider, don't get caught out with this timeshare stuff

Now the Las Brisas apartments, reception was closed

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04313

so I had a peek in

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04415

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04515

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04615

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04717

for lunch we went back to the mexican restaurant as we knew they had proper windows looking out to sea. Notice no ferries and haven't seen any since Fred Olson went off this morning

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04814

the weather seemed to be getting worse

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05015

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04918

I went for a burger as I fancied a change lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05215

well the one at Barney's was IMO better

Mrs Db had another toastie and the resto just didnt do it for us this year

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05115

a poor fishing boat was making for shelter in the marina from the harbour, I would want to be on that for all the tea in China

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05313

now the Bahia Rock had a big refurishment done this last year, so Delboy wanted to investigate as it's now classified as an adult boutique hotel

I had passed the entrance earlier in the holiday

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14811

it looked good but Mrs Db didn't want to go in lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 14912

look if your interested in it, you need to see it first hand, hi im delboy, i may be interested in booking next year could I have a look around and do you have a brochure. We only have the website at the moment Mr Delboy as we have only been open for three weeks, but please look around, thank you miss

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05718

looked nice

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05815

Thos Cook are one of their operators at the mo

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05918

I was quite impressed

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06215

so will bear this one in mind for the future

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06414

but won't have a sea view and some will likely overlook the road

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06516

on the way back, the amazing hedges of the Princesa Yaiza down the side

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06614

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06715

back on the front it hadn't improved, so back to town lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06814

Now Mrs Db, will it be caramel vodka or honey rum lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07316

so it was evening and we decided to go to Lani's as the weather was rotten

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 07914

there was a lady singer as entertainment

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08114

we both picked chicken burritos from their mexican section, which was really nice

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08214

whilst four girls outside braved it and ordered a meal lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 08415

a nice evening

and end of day 10

Day 11, Wednesday

The weather looks worse this morning Mrs Db, no Fred Olsen this morning, we both thought Fred had got one trip in at 6pm last night and went back to Fureteventura 15 minutes later

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00319

so I went on the internet, 1 euro per 20 minutes in the apartments

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06914

I just read something about a boat running aground around the Lanzarote Park area, do you fancy going Mrs Db, "is it far", no only on the headland passed the harbour, "well alright", she said

oh no red flag up yet lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00518

oh the prom has been sealed off

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00617

well I think I will go back and read my kindle, said Mrs Db but you go ahead a check it out lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00717

wow it does even give you 10 seconds to get through if you wanted to lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00815

this is just a camera man's delight, never seen it like this before

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00916

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01014

ok it's round the road then lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01213

the poor town beach is nearly washed away  Shocked 

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02515

and although not as sever as the other area, i was concerned in keeping my camera dry

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02814

I went down as far as the Timanfaya Palace just to check out a mast with a sail but it turned out to be a flag pole

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02918

I didn't see any boats moving today

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03815

a guy had a surf board on Dorada beach

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04016

In the afternoon I watched two good films, when you get to my age you forget the titles and within three weeks you can't remember seeing the films lol

lunch was in the apartment bar, where Mrs Db had a tuna bagette which looked really nice

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04719

I had a toastie and we shared the chips

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04616

Tonight we were going to Cevantes as it is away from the wind and inside

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05413

I was going to try the T-Bone steak for 14 euro's the same meal in Lani's was 21 euro's lol

I kid you not it was massive lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05016

Mrs Db had the fillet steak in peppercorn sauce, which she said was lovely

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05314

house red was 10 euro's what another wonderful meal finished with coffee's

Day 12, Thursday

It's calming down a bit Mrs Db

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00124

Fred Olsen is working, I haven't seen Armas yet

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00321

after a long morning in the apartment we decided to go into town

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 00918

so it was coffee in the Le Brisas, a bit like looking out on Eastbourne prom on a November day lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01215

after coffee, we had a wander around, as it was too early for lunch, I noticed these cocktails for 4.75 euro's, although "sex on the beach" wasn't very appealing at the moment

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01712

The glassbottom boat is going out lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01815

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02014

and good luck to them lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02118

Fred Olsen is coming in again

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02214

it was swaying some what, as it reversed in with those heavy lorries

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 02416

people discussing the beach or lack of it

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 01413

no sure whether the beach will recover, surely they must have had worse storms than this

so now heading back to the apartment the beach is deserted

I noticed one of the large yachts previously inside the marina was outside sitting out in the waves  Shocked 

now if it stays out there and we ever get another sunset that would be good in the foreground

So now back on our balcony I noticed a small dingy go out

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 03917

suddenly the biggest cruiser I have ever seen is being escorted to the harbour

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04113

could it be Abramovich

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04417

or some soul trying to avoid listening to the new Cliff Richard Christmas single lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04516

the cruiser stood outside the marina for 20 minutes or so, whilst they tried to make room for it to get in and the tall sailing ship outside must have had to move out of the way

finally it goes in and Delboy grabs his camera to go and investigate who is coming in

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 04816

conversations between yachters tell me it is some London stockbroker and the boat is registering London

I noticed one of the marina ladies was heavily involved in the organisation of mooring etc, so I went over and asked her lol

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05216

Oh we never know who owns the boats, she replied ......hmm but within 15 minutes on the internet I found out the boat was owned by Solomon Lew an Australian textile billionaire, his company has two boats but of course it could have been on hire

In the meantime I noticed the sun had half come out, so I race around the marina to get a shot with the boats outside, taking this small yacht first

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05315

the sun was coming out more, now for the big yacht

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05614

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05719

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05816

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 05919

I had the fillet steak with rochefort sauce again, it did come out too rare for me but no problem they cooked it a bit more for me and readded the sauce

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06115

Mrs Db had the mixed kebab with different meats

Canary Islands, Lanzarote, Playa Blanca, 2013 - Page 2 06014

End of Day 12
