I recently made my first reservation for friends/clients to stay at the Gran Hotel Natura in Corralejo, Fuerteventura so Alan and I along with a couple of good friends decided to pop over for the day to meet up with them. John and Mel visit Charco del Palo at least once sometimes twice a year, but this time decided that their May holiday would be somewhere different so I booked them into the Gran Hotel Natura for their 10 day holiday.
The boat trip for Alan and I as residents and OAP's (don't say it) cost us 44€ for the return trip but our friends paid double this, which I think is very expensive, but anyhow we all headed to Playa Blanca for the 9am ferry on Monday morning and set off for our nice day out. The weather having been a bit iffy for the past two weeks was beautiful for our day trip.
I contacted the hotel before hand to ask if we could come in for the day, and they had no problem with us doing this. The cost is 10€ per person and this gives you full use of all the facilities, which include two swimming pools, one of which is heated in the winter months, loads of sunbathing areas, gym with sauna and spa bath and a great pool bar where Eve will serve you some really great salads, baguettes, and hamburgers.
We cruised through the day on coffee, wine, beers, lunch, general chit chat, swimming, reading, laughing, sleeping and Chris reckons he did a 10k bike ride downstairs in the gym, yeah, I don't think so Mr Glass, anyhow it was a wonderful day. We finished the evening in Corralejo at a nice restaurant and then caught the last boat home to Lanzarote at 8pm. Like I said at the beginning of this blog...
It was a "A Grand day Out"

All across the island things are gearing up to for one of the biggest days of the year for the Canarian people , Día de las Canarias. This event celebrates the islands culture and people. As we walked through Arrecife along the seafront yesterday we found some really interesting displays showing how the Canarian dress has evolved (see photos below). You can also see from the poster opposite that on Saturday 28th May there will be many stalls selling traditional tapas for just 1€ each. Stalls open at midday and will be serving food and drinks right through till midnight . I would suggest if you are thinking of attending this event to park at the new Marina and walk the short distance to the seafront and you will come across the stalls. Just head towards to noise, you can't miss it. Have fun
A few weeks ago we visited the Jardin de Cactus in Guatiza. It was a cloudy start to the day so we decided to get there as the gates opened at 10am. In fact we were the first people inside which gave us the opportunity to take a few photographs before the crowds arrived.
This was my first visit to the Jardin de Cactus and what a wonderful place to while away a hour or so. It was a lot bigger than I expected and the gardens were very well maintained. The architeture influenced by Manrique was clear to see and the cafe was wonderful, we climbed the spiral staircase to the windmill and hanging from the top to the bottom of the stairs was the most amazing mobile. Check out the lights over the bar when you visit, just brilliant.
I have put together a slide show below of all the photographs I took on this visit, just click the first image to start the show. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
