las Palmas Marina Life
Thu 26 Nov 2015 20:22
Gran Canaria has a population of 850t with approx half of them living in the Capital on the North Eastern tip. The marina is separated from the main town by a busy motorway with a long promenade. We walked into the town yesterday afternoon for me to make sure I wasn't missing out on anything, but found it to be a built up, sprawling grid, with very little sunshine getting through to the streets and not a lot to recommend a visit in all honesty.
Yesterday evening James popped into the sailmakers to enquire about halyard shackles and was delighted to be invited by the shop owner to go along this morning with his new halyard and be given a lesson on splicing! So that's where he is now whilst I sit here at the cafe having a coffee waiting for the washing machine to finish in the laundrette....oh how my life has changed! Lol
Many hours later and I have been on a bike ride in the glorious sunshine and stumbled across some lovely pretty areas on the outskirts of the southern end of the marina. James has very nearly exhausted his list of jobs to do, the main one to replace the water maker membrane and make sure it was up and running and producing water purer than Evian before we leave here on Saturday...tick!
