Canarian holiday (Part 3 -Playa Blanca)

On the penultimate day of our holiday we took a trip to Lanzarote, another of the Canary Islands and very close to our resort of Corralejo - I had been keen to do this but first attempt we'd found that the Fred Olsen ferry was costly (€51 for a ferry that took about 45 minutes) and also that we needed our passports which we did not have with us so instead we booked for a later day(less than half the price) with an Armas Ferry.

The journey was incredibly smooth and the boat not crowded although there was a little of a chill factor from the sea.

Once we landed we took a walk towards the residential area, seemed more Germans than in Fuerteventura but plenty of Brits too - there was even a chip shop frequented by Chris Gascoyne (The actor who plays Peter Barlow in Coronation Street) - for the more sporty we saw people learning some rudimentary board skills.

Burger King Canary Style 















Generally I've not seen cats close to the sea but noticed them a few times while we  were on holiday.

Go on - Fetch!









You don't intimidate me.






I must confess that 'The guilty pleasure' that is a fast food  burger taken abroad was indulged in ( at Burger King). all in a all a nice trip and another island from the group visited.
