The Canary Islands- Lanzarote

Daniel Exposito, our assistant director of the MTC is from the Canary Islands and he is so proud of the Islands and wanted us to come down. We finally arranged three firesides down here and came. He wore us out yesterday seeing this volcanic island. Here we have Daniel, Benjamin 8 and Samuel 11-- and the camels.

Yes they got me on a camel ride. It was the first time I have agreed to do that in all my travels and I kind of liked it. I am not sure the camel felt the same way.

The ground is productive but there is no water and lots of wind so they build shelters for the grapes, hand water them and produce a very famous wine

There are lot's of battlements on the shore to defend against Pirates. There are 7 main islands in the Canaries. This is where Columbus stopped on his way to get provisions and they are located just off the coast from Morocco in Africa.
