Lazy Days–Fuerteventura Style.

On Wednesday morning we flew out from Gatwick to Fuerteventura to stay with friends, and members of the Braidbar Boat Owners Club (Canary Island Branch).


Before the flight we enjoyed a couple of hours in North Terminal No1 Lounge drinking champagne and having a leisurely lunch.


Reaching Fuerteventura in the early evening we went out with friends Eileen, Les, (Doug) and Bill for a very good Chinese meal.  During the meal we were serenaded on the violin by the very talented 10 year old son of the restaurant owner.


Today the weather was very hot and sunny all day and the swimming pool was the main order of the day.


James made friends with Dolly the dolphin ……..


….. but the friendship was soon interrupted by Doug.


Later this afternoon we had a good long walk away from centre of Caleta de Fuste, where the roundabouts are very well cared for.


Then into the volcanic and somewhat Martian landscape of the island’s northern Atlantic coast.  After returning to the sandy beaches near the town and enjoying some relaxation in the sunshine for an hour  ………..


…..we walked back to our friends’ villa and continued our sunny relaxation around the pool – enjoying both their great company and the wine and nibbles!  With the temperature in the high 20’s Bill, Doug, Les and Eileen take in the afternoon. sunshine.
