Arrecife, Lanzarote - Canary Islands

By Arieu
It’s hard to top an evening like last night’s, or to come down to earth after it for that matter. The Freon leak was quickly found and soldered shut again, long before any provisions would have started to melt. The storekeeper was assuaged and Ludin was instructed to stay away from the galley for a while, which would be best for everyone.
Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote, the northernmost Canary Island, promises quiet delight and restful resorts, and even boasts a tourism industry based on tranquility. To us, Arrecife is a hardy sprinkle of white condos far out in the distance but still it manages to look fantastically boring. The hills that surround it are barren, and so are the plains and pretty much the whole island. Not a single tree catches the eye.
Still, it must have some allure. There’s a monstrously large cruise ship tied up behind us, and up front is a cute little cruise ship. At some point during the day, a third huge cruise ship docks. There’s no telling what might be out there but thousands were here to see it.
