So its official, We are recognised by Ayuntamiento de Haria as a naturist area, they erected a rather large sign at the entrance to Charco del Palo this morning, in fact the work men were still there when I took the photo. Great news for Charco del Palo, long may naturism continue.
I just checked out the link www.turismoharia.com and there is the most amazing video of Haria and the surrounding area. Worth a look.
Jackie has hung up her apron at Reiner's Pub. Thursday last week was her last night working at the bar. A sad day indeed for Charco del Palo now that she has left. We had a Bit of a Do last night for Jackie, we presented her with some lovely gifts and and lots of good wishes in all she has planned for the future. Reiner made a nice pasta salad and his famous cucumber salad and Bernie cooked some snorkers on the barbecue along with some chicken. A good night and plenty of people there to wish her well. We will miss you xx
Freaky weather today in Lanzarote, hail storm passes through the centre of the island leaving a white landscape in its wake. Impressive even for Lanzarote.

The Cantina de Mala is celebrating Carnival on Saturday 18th March. The party starts at 14hrs with a DJ getting everyone in the mood. This is followed at 16hrs by a drag show and family fun. The carnival theme at Cantina de Mala is "Carnaval Blanco" which means if possible you must wear white. In case you are wondering why there is such a big gap between the Drag show finishing and the evening disco starting at 21hrs, its to give you the chance to drive up to Haria and experience Carnaval Haria 2017 which has a Bollywood theme. The parade in Haria starts at 19hrs.
The Cantina de Mala has only been open a short while, but it is making a big effort and is already a firm favourite of ours. On Sundays they do a brunch party and often have live music for a couple of hours. Freshly cooked spit roast chickens along with the tapas menu are available on this day.
The tapas menu changes daily, so remember to go inside and check to see whats on the bar, or if Victor the chef is about ask him what he can recommend.
How to get there - At the junction in Mala by the Arepera Bar turn right and you will see the Cantina de Mala just past the Chemist.

The Meteorología Lanzarote issue a Yellow alert for Calima and high temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday this week. The Calima hung about for a little while on Wednesday and there was some cloud cover but it was extremely hot by mid afternoon. By 17.45hrs visibility was about 150m. I was driving out of the village at the time and it was very spooky. The "haar" or "sea fret" as it is know is caused by warm air condensing over the cold sea and creating a fog. This is most unusual and I can honestly say I have never experienced anything like it before in Charco del Palo
