Wednesday – the city awakens

Vacation means time do do…nothing. Days that are unplanned, do whatever. Wednesday was exactly that kind of day for us!

At seven we went out into the city. I love early morning in a city! Before everyone is awake, see the workers and the joggers (here are a LOT of joggers!), meet the dogs on their morning walks. It’s peaceful.

Corralejo is a town that feels…alive. I mean, every city is alive as long as there is people, but some cities are more…awake. Moving. There’s a pulse.

A mix of peolpe, all trying to make a living. Small bakeries, street musicians, sand artists, café-owners, shopkeepers, and – as this is Corralejo – surfers.

The houses here are small and worn, the streets narrow. Life is everywhere. If you don’t have space – create it!

We followed the beach, and watched the sunrise.

The sun paints everything pink and golden. Quick tip when you photograph sunrises or sunsets – don’t forget to look behind you! The light is fantastic…

And as we continued back, we watched the city wake up and greet the new day.

Some people are building houses…

…and some are building castles of sand.

The surfers seem to have some kind of “hotline”, to tell eachother where the surf is perfect that day.

And I got some fur therapy! This beauty came to say hi.

The rest of the day was spent on shopping, drinking coffee, snorkling (Ola), reading on the beach (me), enjoying the sun, hiding from the rain (quick but intense), and just…being a part of this city.

A perfect day.
