Day 3, Wednesday.
We passed by the Salinas de Janubio, where salt is extracted. We did not stop here so the following photos were taken from the bus.

Since these photos were taken from the window of the bus, please excuse their quality.
Every vine is placed in a hollow and surrounded by volcanic stones to protect them from the wind.

10-lanzarote-salinas-puerto.jpgThere are vineyards here as well.
11-lanzarote-salinas-puerto.jpgOn our way back to the hotel, we saw this familiar mountain.
12-lanzarote-salinas-puerto.jpgWe passed by a monument dedicated to a peasant, which we will investigate on our

next excursion

The cool blue water of the ocean was a welcome relief after a long hot day of touring part of the island.
