Christmas in Lanzarote 2017 - Part 4

The day Raymond's parents left started off very overcast



We decided to take the ferry over to Fuerteventura to spy 

There was a little section you could sit in and see underwater

But once we were going you couldn't really see anything :( 

So we went back to the deck for the ride





It was a bit choppy going over, but not too bad. It didn't make me super sick or anything





Dock at Corralejo

We wandered along the water all morning









And found lots of tide pools to spy on! And watch the fishes!





Underwater picture of fishes! Yes, I put my hand in the water to take the photo!!


















Then we went to a vegan restaurant, Baobob, for lunch before our boat back to Playa Blanca






Soup, salad, veggie balls, and vegan cheese! It was delicious!



The ferry ran at 13:30 and then not again until 17:30 so we decided to catch the earlier one. I am so so so glad we did!





The water doesn't look much choppier than the morning, but it was! Oh, I got soooooo motion sick on the way back. Oh it was horrible, and the water just got choppier and windier and by the time the 17:30 ferry would have ran the water was just all white caps and yeah. That would have been even worse so I am so glad we caught the earlier ferry! 

Constant up and down at crazy angles! We started off sitting on the main deck in the very front which was okay, but it was so rough that there was a ton of water being splashed on us and we were getting soaked. 







Eventually it was too much outside so I tried standing inside on the main deck, but then you had to be off to one side and it was not good. 



We ended up on the top deck, which was slightly better, but not much. It was a half hour boat ride, but it felt like forever!

As our clothes dried you could see the salt that was left from the water!


Back to Playa Blanca!









We brought treats back for cafe und kuchen time!

Relaxing by the pool

One last sunset from around the hotel property














It was a great trip! Lots of relaxing by the pool, on our balcony, and it was beautiful!

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we ma
