A few pictures of our holiday in Lanzarote, my photography skills on an evening aren't as good as they should be, probably due to the fact I've imbibed a few too many cocktails LOL!! - Make mine a mudslinger - I had a real passion for those whilst we were there and for Mai Tais - LOL!! Any way this is the view from our apartment balcony - Wonderful isn't it
Whilst we were in Costa Teguise it was leading up to carnival week, of course we didn't realise that when we booked because if we had we would have booked to be there this weekend when the big carnival is on, but every evening last week there was a parade and a small drum band on, they just got better and better, so we were sorry to miss the big night tonight.
Our weather was good most of the time we were there, we had we reckoned about 3 1/2 days of really warm sunshine the rest was overcast and very very windy, and we even had rain on Sunday - now that was a cold day!! We visited Teguise which I understand is the old capitol, the streets were narrow and winding and there was a huge market on which filled the streets, and in the little squares there was music and dancing, unfortunately there were so many people it was very hard to get close to watch or take photos.
We had to wear jackets on an evening as it was a bit chilly, but it is Lanzarote winter and it was a million times better than the winter here in the UK. On one of the very windy but bright days we decided to have a walk around the shore line and the waves were spectacular to say the least but again my photography skills aren't showing them as great as they were, but they were amazingly high and the colour of the sea was a brilliant turquoise and the sound of the surf crashing against the rocks was lovely.
We never really sunbathed this time we were away we wandered around the streets and took in the views, found a lot of lovely little cafe/bars which sold Tapas and coffee and sangria and beer, it was fun to sit outside and people watch. We had a couple of favourite bars we went to on a night, they were fun places and one of the big things that impressed us was everywhere was so clean, no rubbish lying around and the toilets - those who know me I have a thing about toilets, well every bar we went to had incredibly spotless toilets it didn't seem to matter how many people were using them they were sooooo clean and smelt clean too, tiles shined, sinks gleamed, I was most impressed, better than anywhere else we have ever been before for public loos.
We have come back regretful that it was so soon, but with a lot of anticipation to go back again, next time I am hoping we go for longer and visit a few more places, but if we only stay in Costa Teguise I know I won't be disappointed.
