Last Thursday (8th November), the annual kite festival began. As usual, the first day was held in El Cotillo, before moving on to Corralejo. I went to El Cotillo, but sadly somehow managed to take a wide-angle lens and not my usual zoom, so I was unable to take any decent photographs. However, we still had a fabulous day out with friends, and ended up at the wonderful Azzurro restaurant for a fabulous meal – we can thoroughly recommend eating there, but do book a table as they can get very busy!
Yesterday (Saturday 10th November) we took a trip to the dunes at Corralejo, and this time I made sure I had the correct lens on! Whilst the weather was good, there were still quite a few clouds about, especially over and around Montana Roja.
Happy to see there were a few different kites to last year, including a flying pig, although sadly that was not flying for long and I didn’t get a chance to take a photo of it! I loved the man on the flying carpet, even when he crashed as he looked as though he was praying LOL!
One thing that we found very annoying was that a number of people had parked sideways, thus taking up the space of at least two cars! When it’s so busy traffic-wise this meant a number of cars simply couldn’t find anywhere to park. Also, be very careful where you park! A number of cars park on the sand on the opposite side of the road, and we always see cars that are stuck and having to be dug out; even 4x4s!
