Dear Blog Folk,
Here we are in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote. Above, the sight from our terrace this morning. Below our humble beach hut - Room 217:-
A morning stroll and this caught my eye - railings festooned with the padlocks of love. I wonder when and where the craze began. It never happened in my youth that's for sure. Padlocks were for sheds, school lockers and bicycles:-We reached the big beach to the west of the resort town and there I snapped the lifeguards' shelter. Three fellows were deep in conversation about the existence of God and other philosophical matters:-
I spotted a cat called Franco, pausing on his way down to the sea:-
Afterwards we swam in the hotel pool and read our novels. Wish you were here.
