After a few hours of heavy, grey clouds and rain we arrived Rubicon Marina, south coast Lanzarote at 21:20 on Tuesday 9th. Total miles from Gibraltar was 644.
Following some precision stern mooring by Dan we headed off to the nearest bar to celebrate our arrival. I think the sea-legs must have kicked in as the land did appear to be swaying a little when we left the bar the next morning at 3.
Unsuprisingly, Wednesday 10th was spent relaxing with minimal activity - no camel rides, no volcano walking, just a little reading, a stroll around the harbour and swimming by some in the (apparently) "not too cold" waters in a nearby bay. The twice-weekly market was on in the harbour so it was buzzing.I had to go to the local pharmacia to replenish the Lemsips after a bout of man-flu, about which I think I hardly complained or craved sympathy at all!
Today, Thursday 11th, we cleaned down to boat, took on fuel and water ready for our departure about 6 this evening for Gran Canaria. It's about a 100 miles run so averaging say 6 kts, it should take us about 16 hours, arriving Las Palmas marina mid morning.
Right now, Dan is reading his book, Sue and Paul have gone for a walk and to buy some bread, I'm writing the blog and getting ready to enjoy some sunshine. All is well with the world aboard PhoebeB.  Tony
