A few weeks or so ago I hired a car to drive around the island.
This is a picture of my Opal; my ticket to freedom!
On one of my trips I went to Famara which is best known for its excellent surf.
I was struck by the sand dunes which resonated with me, probably due to happy memories of Camber Sands.
The sands are blown into picturesque shapes.
The trade winds blowing from the Atlantic cut grooves into the dunes.
If the sands are disturbed, small slides are started, creating new and strange shapes.
Sands are blown across the road.
Overall I was really impressed with the sands of Famara.
