The River Shournagh

Fog lay thick over the fields around Blarney and the River Shournagh the morning I made this photo.

Sea Defences

In the water by the pier at Hotel Los Fariones in Puerto Del Carmen, Lanzarote.

The defences are needed. After winter storms this year it looks like some beaches in Puerto Del Carmen and Playa Blanca lost about 30cm of sand in some areas. Rocks are uncovered that I’ve never seen. Hopefully the beaches will recover naturally.

Temple Hall

Temple Hall, or Telamon as it was known when it ran aground in Lanzarote in 1981.

“That Saturday October 31, 1981 a strong storm lashed the Canary Islands. It would not be a quiet day in the small port of Los Mármoles, Lanzarote. A freighter called the port to request permission for emergency assistance as they had suffered a serious leak, they were travelling from Abidjan and San Pedro from the Gulf of Guinea and carried a large shipment of huge wooden logs on route to the Greek port of Thessaloniki in the Aegean Sea.

It was easy to comprehend the damage sustained to the ship, a simple look and it was realised that the ships gravity was not sufficient to make the dock, there was a possibility of it sinking into the inner harbour which would render the port useless. The forecast was still heavy seas for the following day.”
