From Graciosa we said a fond farewell to the stunning beaches and set sail to Lanzarote. Hugo had learnt to paddle board (huge thanks to Grandad for the boys early birthday present) and even mined his own cave on the beach, hours of fun by all.
We set sail with a Dutch family the children had being playing with and as we sailed down the east coast of Lanzarote Russell (aka eagle-eye) spotted whales between us and the land. Full prizes to anyone who can spot the pilot whale in this photo, but I assure you the black fin is there just in front of the middle volcano. Trying to get a photo of their spouts of water was impossible! It was great to have our second sighting of whales so far on the trip.
