Thursday Feb 28 – and we are on our way out. Our flight home leaves at 6 am on Mar 1 – so for our last night we are staying at a hotel right near the southern airport where we have prearranged to drop the car off and fly from.
We left Las Aguas in good time after a thorough pack readying for the trip home. The highway from north to south was in good condition, and much less serpentine than the back roads – but as we went south the traffic got denser and denser. By the time we were close, we pulled out of ‘traffic jam central’ to finally try out the local McDonald’s.
Suz likes to sample the McD to see the variations in different places – and the menu here didn’t disappoint! I had a Goat Cheese Burger, Mike had a smoked BBQ with bacon and we also had wedges with mojo and garlic sauce, and beer. We all enjoyed our meals – but not cheap at 23 Euro for Mike & I ($36 Cdn).
Then to SuperDino to pick up our duty free where we got a 1 Litre Dambuie for 23 Euro ($36). We never did manage to find the Aloe Vera intense sports gel nor the flavoured salts which we had passed over in Fuertaventura. And I’ve had no luck finding anything ‘Canary Island special’ for the baby – not to worry, I’m certain she’ll be spoiled enough!
Our final night was at an older resort. It was a very functional space and had all you needed in a tiny kitchen. No surprise the wifi was pretty sketchy. It was too cold to enjoy the pool, but we chillaxed on our balcony and found a cheap ‘Tapas ‘n Chill’ for an early dinner during happy hour. The four of us shared 6 tapas for 23 Euro and a last pitcher of sangria for 13 Euro – so cheaper than our McD’s splurge!
Then back for one last game of Wizard and an early bed for a 3 am rise. Our flight took off as scheduled with no delays this time. We tipped our hands to Gary/Cynthia/Adrian & Janet as we flew past Morocco. Then back to Madrid and off to Toronto all on schedule.
And so it ends – another great adventure with Dan & Suz is in the books (or on the blog).
For your final viewing pleasure, here is a chance to see behind the camera – what you don’t get to see in Michael’s photos – pictures of Michael! The lesser skill of this photographer is hopefully made up for by the unique content!
