We left 'The Beach' on Graciosa and are back in the grubby fishing port of Naos on the neighboring island of Lanzarote. There is a cruise/ferry ship terminal has facilitated a nice walking path to the main town there, Arrecife, and the shopping is good. We are anchored just out of the channel and just clear the boats on moorings.
There are some some old fortifications, windmills, salt pans and other archeological sites of interest.
We had hoped to leave soon on our Atlantic crossing with a good weather window allowing a fast ride down to some tradewinds down around 17 degrees North latitude which would then allow an easy ride across. This has not materialized and we are now just making the best of our situation with some good friends in the anchorage.
