Gran Canaria to Tenerife
Sat 17 Oct 2009 17:55
The island has beautiful national parks with great walks, gorgeous goats cheese and they are very good at Brazilian food (no- we don't know why).
The worst aspect of Gran Canaria is the really dirty pavements with cockroaches everywhere. at one cafe we were served a bowl of peanuts with a dead cockroach peeking out
We were thrown out of the marina because of prior bookings for ARC participants so left for Tenerife. Had a lovely night sail, with a few dolphins, lots of stars and the milky way and all the usual beautiful sights (that we now take for granted).
So, back to drinking wine and so on. Still a few jobs to finish on the boat, while waiting for the hurricane season to pass (not that there were many) and the trade winds to settle in.
