Happy New Year!
13 January 2011 | Lanzarote
There are worse places to spend New Year and Christmas. It's been a good one this year, though very different. We were so happy that my mum was finally able to come out after 24 hours delay and a hotel stay in Gatwick. One less day with us, but we packed as much in as possible whilst she was here, hiring a car and visiting volcanoes, camels, entertaining (but what would Durrell say?!) parrot shows! The weather is about 24 degrees; Puerto Calero is a very touristy spot with lots of people coming up to ask us about our trip.
Christmas was lego-tastic. Santa obviously knew about Mia and Lochy's star wars craze as he bought plenty for them to get on with. Most of it is already done, but it can always be re-done!
Another highlight of Lochy and Mia's stay in Lanzarote was that Kieran from Jersey arrived with his mum and dad to live in Lanzarote and we have all made the most of our time together before we cross the pond. New Year in Puerto Calero was a kareoke extravaganza with Nicola stealing the mike for most of the evening and Mark's birthday was spent walking along the coast - just like the cliff paths at home. Only volcanic.
