Arrecife, Canary IslandsFebruary 28 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C
Yesterday was a sea day with little to report (other than victory at Trivia). Today we were in the lovely little city of Arrecife. This is the oldest of the Canary Islands and is volcanic. Tory and Roger went on a bus tour to the UNESCO designated park. They learned a great deal about the Islands. I will add their report when I get it.
Brian and I walked into town. The route is clearly marked and an easy walk. The cruise terminal facilities look brand new and are white, like all the other buildings in the town. We walked to the old fortress which is now a museum. Unfortunately all the information is in Spanish so it had limited educational value for us. We walked the Main Street and bought some Aloe products (aloe is grown here). There are bike and scooter rentals on the street but we just wandered around. Lunch was tapas and wine beside the water then back to the ship. All in all, a delightful day.Read more
