Adopting a dog in Lanzarote

I had been thinking about it for a while and, finally, I decided to take the plunge: I was going to adopt a dog.

Blackie

I got in touch with SARA, the well-known animal protection association of Lanzarote sending them a message via Facebook and Ana, one of SARA's spokespersons, responded promptly. She asked me a few questions: had I had dog before, what kind of dog was I after, had I seen any in particular on their website that I'd be interested in meeting. This was the part that I dreaded the most: choosing just one amongst so many.

I had visited the SARA's premises a few years ago, when a friend of mine adopted her dog. I went along a bit for moral support and a bit for curiosity to see what it was like in there. My heart was broken, so many animals in this animal limbo, waiting to be picked by someone willing to give them a home. So Ana came to MY rescue: she suggested this little dog that wasn't even listed yet! She told me about her background and send me a photo. The minute I saw her, I thought: this is she! I can honestly say that it was love at first sight. I had the honour of naming her and  read more »

Bottom Fishing & Coastal Trolling Excursion

The Katfish departs from La Tiñosa harbour in the old town area of Puerto del Carmen three times a week for bottom fishing and coastal trolling excursions in Lanzarote.

Katfish Puerto del Carmen HarbourKatfish Sport Fishing Lanzarote

We arranged our trip with Sport Fishing Lanzarote, through Touristticket both of whom have an office in the harbour itself. There were 17 of us booked for the excursion and our crew included Captain Osiris, Louie and Mathew. What’s nice about this particular fishing excursion is that the boat is comfortable for spectators, there’s plenty of space, the deck is flat and you can walk around the Katfish without fear of falling over board.

El Capitán Osiris welcomed us aboard, he’s a Lanzaroteño with an unusual name taken after an Egyptian god, so commonly known as Captain Sparrow. The rods were already set up and in position along the length of the Katfish, after a quick briefing on the day we cruised out of the harbour heading south.

Lanzarote Walk, Giant Fossil Eggs

We attended the “Pisadas sobre huellas - Los avestruces de Órzola" walk organised by the Cabildo of Lanzarote today to visit the sites of archaeological interest at Valle Grande & Valle Chico.

Footpath to Valle GrandeGiant egg fossils Lanzarote

There are two short walks both within a kilometre of the main road, where you can visit the area that has been excavated to discover these giant fossil eggs which are believed to be around 6 million years old. We met the latest team of 30 students from different areas of Spain who are spending the month of August excavating to try and uncover more fossils and hopefully bones, although it is rare to find any in situ with the eggs.

Valle Grande

Valle_Grande

To find the footpath to Valle Grande pick up the dirt track on the right of the LZ-203 heading towards Pardelas Park. The track becomes a single file footpath to the barranco of Valle Grande. You will see the layer of basalt that has been carefully chipped away over several years, if you climb up to that level, you can find a smooth egg shaped dish on the furthest section where one of the eggs was found.  read more »
