El Cotillo, early evening:
Still busy on beach and people arriving.



Looking across to Tindaya (montana at extreme left of picture) with the Betancuria range in the distance. (Sorry, not very good focus on this one.)



From Tindaya at about 7pm I could see Mt Teide on Tenerife for about 10 mins until a bank of cloud got in the way. Not visible in any of pics though.  :(

I noticed one had not loaded, but I was in a bit of a rush yesterday, taking family to the airport, management takes the photographs, but the first one is as you turn on to the FV20 going toward Tuinje, and the second is somewhere near Ginginamar.

I understand The UK weather is a little unsettled I have just got off the phone to a friend in Cheltenham where they are expecting thunder storms ( deep joy )

Great pic JR2!
I was over in Corralejo all day Sunday, the haze started to clear during the morning with a light breeze but by lunchtime the breeze had dropped, the haze thickened, and the humidity just kept climbing. Nightmare trying to get washing and floors dry.
