We are on the south shore of Gomera, the fourth Canary Island we have visited. The scenery on this shore is marvellous. There are huge towering cliffs rising up from the sea on the entire southern coast. The first place we stopped was behind a point that protected us from the east but the anchorage was open to the swell from the south. You see the spinnaker pole hanging off the side of the boat, our flopper stopper is in the water dampening the roll of the boat. It is a life saver.
When I asked the Québécois couple what this island was like she told me there were 'ippies. I did not really understand until we arrived. They are living in caves all around this beach, they are nudists and lay about the rocky beach in all their glory. One has a kayak and paddles up and down the bay fishing, yesterday as I went for a snorkel there were two skin divers spear fishing. There were not many fish down by the rocks close to shore, I wonder whether they had fished the area out?
