Canarian holiday (Part 2 -El Cotillo)

Although we spent most of our time on recent holiday in Corralejo Fuerteventura we did manage to get out and about on a couple of adventures- the first was to to El Cotillo on the Monday of our holiday.

The trip was taken by public transport, bus (about 3€ each I think) and took about 40 minutes.
The place was really charming and as yet relatively unspoilt  - weather was good and we had a nice relaxing lunch overlooking the sea.

The area is popular with surfers and there were also dune buggies running around.

El Cotillo had something of an artistic vibe, photo's on display, statues and crafts everywhere- also a fine old tower used to defend against marauders (now a small museum and gallery)- great place to visit.

Reminded me of Picasso's Bull sculpture
It was hot enough for this

And this too.
















And there was time for an enjoyable  'Al Fresco' lunch as well
