San Sebastian de La Gomera Harbour #1

Line of yachts in the harbour at San Sebastian de La Gomera, the capital of La Gomera in the Canary Islands

The story behind this image

During our week long stay on Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, my wife Liz and I took a day's ferry and coach excursion over to La Gomera, the second smallest of the Canary Islands just to the west of Tenerife itself.

We had no time for exploring and photographing in San Sebastian after docking before being whisked off on a coach tour around the island's beauty spots (really lovely by the way).

But I'm glad to say that our coach tour ended back at San Sebastian with an hour to spare before the ferry back to Tenerife was due to depart, so Liz and I used the time profitably to explore and photograph this rather charming town.

Towards the end of our stay we wandered slowly back to the harbour to wait for our ferry, which is where I saw this line of expensive looking yachts looking very nice against the azure water.

It was the work of but a few seconds to capture this image as we walked by.
