11.39

quite a few of the rooms high up would probably get a sea view but some near the car park end wouldn't, I understand some rooms have been refurbished and that there is a two tier system in operation, so one would need to check on what facilities you have

They have made a small sand area near the promenade end for those that prefer sitting on sand

11.41

people on mobile scooters, just be aware of these few dips in the promenade, I'm not sure how long it will take them to repair them

11.47

Now my next task was to walk at 'power walk' pace from the marina El Mirador to the Sandos Papagayo's back entrance (on the watch) and then walk back at a more managable pace, to see how long each journey takes

at the El Mirador now

Attachment:
049.jpg
049.jpg [ 631.17 KiB | Viewed 93 times ]

11.49

at the back entrance to the Sandos Papagayo now and all corners on the prom were cut to achieve this, I also have split times at other points

Attachment:
061.jpg
061.jpg [ 1.1 MiB | Viewed 93 times ]

11.61

Now this time walking back at a more reasonable pace but still overtook several people, I guess as a pair we will walk slower than this pace but it will give you and idea of the time of the walk to the far end of the marina from Sandos Papagayo, again I has split times from other hotels along the way

Attachment:
063.jpg
063.jpg [ 688.5 KiB | Viewed 93 times ]

11.163

Mrs Db had the steak which was also enjoyable, the waiters were friendly and we enjoyed the place very much and would add it to our other restaurants to return to but the prices do creep up and it would be a one off each year

well it's an easy game, you should do well lol, he replied well the balls fluked in for me and I beat Paco and another guy

Well it was Saturday our last full day and Fuerteventura was still missing and it didn't look like a beach day

after breakfast, I said to Mrs Db I might pop over to the market and see if I can buy the knight for 25€s but was not going to pay 30€'s, so I gathered all the remaining bread that we no longer required (no not money in slang, bread to feed the fish)

and then with the experience of a 1000 "Bargain Hunt" and "Put your money where you mouth is" shows, I headed for the market

"What's your bottom price on the Knight", I asked, "sorry Delboy, 30€'s is our bottom price",
"Well last year it was only 25€'s", I replied. "That was a different make, "I'll tell you what, I'll split the difference 28€'s and that it ", said the stall holder.

Oh well I replied I only have a luggage weight of 15kg this year anyway, perhaps next year then

we were quicker through than those that hadn't done it on line, as I had a person as a 'marker' in the other queue

I think we took 25 minutes and once through, there was a new duty free shop that had a few offers on, the L&B cigarette were two packs for 44€'s and the amber tobacco was 45€'s reduced from 54€'s but we don't smoke

so one of the first on the plane

Like all holiday and house hunting programmes they nearly always have a summary end.

Well you may be wondering what happened with the knight, well after careful consideration and agreement in favour of Delboy, the stall holder said it was mine, which I happily accepted (anyway, I think the stall holder was still happy too) lol

and now the knight guards my favour bottle of red and reminds us of Lanzarote for another year.
