The story behind this image

During our week long winter break on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands my wife Liz and I managed to explore pretty much all of this relatively small island.

One of the places we liked so much that we went back to a couple of times was the small seaside town of Arrieta, on the north coast of the island.

Relatively undeveloped, Arrieta seemed to be a place where the locals went for a day out and a spot of surfing on the large Atlantic rollers that surge onto this coastline.

Here is one of the more sucessful surfers, riding a lovely curl with Arietta's broken jetty in the background.
