Day 247 – 21st March 2011
Caleto del Sebo, La Graciosa, Islas Canarias
Solar panel on, some hand washing and a cold shower to start the day. I saw an amazing bird with stripes and a crest on the breakwater, barely 2 metres from me but never figured out what it was. We went to the beach to read and sunbathe. We met Johnnie, an Irish man who’d arrived 3 weeks earlier. On his arrival was asked “How long are you staying?” He told us, “I looked up at him with a big silly grin on my face and said – Forever.” He immediately went and paid to stay for 6 months. He walked a happy man’s walk.
