After Graciosa, where the proprietor of one of the restaurants is also the diesel pump attendant and assistant in the only hardware shop, the relative sophistication of Marina Rubicon in Lanzarote came as a bit of a shock. For example, on entry, the marina provides a guide to the extensive facilities and a list of 'rules' including no washing lines on boats. Fortunately most boats ignore the resistrictions. As Ellen pointed out they can't expect much else if they only provide one washing machine to 500 boats. It's surprising how easy it is to adjust though and we've been enjoying relaxing in the cafes and restaurants surrounding the marina, particularly the Mojitos at Cafe del Mar.

It's been a fun guest week with visits by Ian, Liz and my parents, so there should be some guest blog entries soon...
