Festival time with 3 nights of LOUD music here. We took a day and rode a local bus up to the center of the island. The land was all green and rock with deep canyons dropping straight down. Spectacular, but I’m more comfortable with sea level. Ex-strangers Diana and Jim here, folks I hope to meet again. Slow start. Wind light and variable, 6 hours for 15 miles. Now just dark, loud, and wild. Teaching Uli about simple one pan cooking. Good miles tonight. Daylight and no change. 20 knots on port quarter. Spot the Selvagens Islands just before dark. Another force 5 night and day. Never did see Tenerife. Just off Las Palmas at dark. Enough ships out here in the dark for a good demolition derby. Love AIS. Tied the lines and ran to Sailors Bar for a beer.
Note: If the latest photos look much better you can blame Uli.
