The Canaries

We’ve had an amazing two months cruising the Canary Islands from Graciosa, Lanzarote to Tenerife and Gran Canaria.

We’ve met up again with our friends aboard Oyster Moon and the children had a great week playing together at an anchorage.

We also caught up with friends from home in half term week, fabulous to see Dom, Katy, beautiful Jessie and our gorgeous godson Jasper.

We enjoyed visiting water parks and zoos with them and hiking up to see the famous Nublo rock in the mountains.

Jasper, not yet two, had a go as skipper on a day sail and Katy and Jessie had a great time on the spinnaker boom swing.

We’ve even had our first night out without the boys in 6 months as Katy and Dom babysat 😇😍🥂🍾. We’ve celebrated the boys birthdays and had my sister, Aunty Anne out to visit. Little did she know that she’d be roped into helping sort/bake our way through hosting a double birthday party on board. Who says you need acres of space for a childs birthday party!!

It was lovely to see family and to receive all the goodies from home. Thank you everyone for being so thoughtful and generous. The boys were over the moon with their birthday gifts which will see them fully occupied across the Atlantic. Sarah – the painting and art goodies are amazing. The boys are fascinated by it all and are drawing and painting away.

We’ve been hosted by the Ocean Cruising Club, and met fellow OCC members at the most wonderful BBQ in Agustín’s house. Thank you Agustín, for sorting a diver for the boat and helping with dentist appointments too, you’re the best port officer ever! From Porsito Blanco we sailed north into 30kts of wind to Las Palmas were we continue our preparations for the Atlantic crossing.
