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.
The combination of breaking waves, spray from a stiff offshore breeze and surfing action proved too good to resist, and made flying 4000 miles with a huge 100-400mm telephoto lens in my rucksack well worthwhile.
