It' been a while since I posted the last episode from this series. I was hoping to finish it in one continuous sequence with one post per week but somehow summer holidays came in between. But now I'm back and here it is: the next part of my Fuerte photo diary. If you like to catch up you'll find the previous reports here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 and Day 5.

These are the kind of thoughts that run through my head on an island like this. I hardly know a more stimulating environment than the one that Fuerteventura offers. Should I ever write a book, I would try to retreat here.

Fuerte2023-day6-6.jpg Each of these lava rocks were once hurled out of a volcano and after a mile wide parabolic flight they landed where they still lie today. That's at least what I like to think. Tides have likely moved them around a bit since then.

Thanks for following along and see you back next time 👋.
