 Article Title :: 17 Lanzarote Beaches - Haria
 
Haria is the most northern of Lanzarotes seven municipalities. It can thank the Sahara Desert and strong winds for what some regard as Lanzarote finest beaches.The entire coastline is known as Malpaís de la Corona (“badlands”) and is strewn with white and golden sand which mingles intimately with volcanic magma forming small sheltered bays (a number of which are featured in this article), which are ideal for swimming. This preominently rural area harbours many of the natural marvels of Lanzarote such as Jameos del Agua and La Cueva de Los Verdes (See my related article 23xx on these attractions).Our first of five beaches being reviewed in this area is known as El Calet  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 16 Lanzarote Beaches - Teguise
 
Teguise is one of the largest and most popular of Lanzarotes seven municipalities. It includes Famara (in the north) and Costa Teguise, (in the south).If your mathematical formula for fun on the beach is “Water=Waves”, then you should be heading for the northern coastline that takes in Famara (and neighbouring La Santa – See article “13 Lanzarote beaches – Tinajo”).Our first of six beaches being reviewed in this area is known as Famara, measuring 6 kilometres long by 100 m (the biggest beach in Lanzarote). Fine golden sand, a constant wind and ever present strong swells against a backdrop of mountains makes this worth visiting, but the strong currents in this ar  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 15 Lanzarote Beaches - Arrecife
 
Arrecife is the smallest of the islands seven municipalities and house the islands new capital (having taken over the mantel from Teguise at the end of the 18th century). Like neighbouring San Bartholme, there are relatively few beaches in this area, although the two that follow are well a visit.Arrecife (the name originates from the abundance of reefs and islets along its short coast), has a skyline totally dominated by the islands tallest building (the Grand Hotel) which you may have seen during your approach to the airport. The first beach is known as El Reducto, a picturesque European Union, ‘Blue Flag’ beach set in an almost enclosed bay and measuring half a kilometre by  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 14 Lanzarote Beaches - San Bartholme
 
San Bartholme is the most central of the islands seven municipalities separating the two contrasting landscapes of the north and south of the island. There are relatively few beaches in this area, although we did have visited three on our many trips to the area.The first beach is known as Guacimeta. This 1,050m stretch of beach of toasted sand and calm waters is quite exceptional as beaches go, except that it’s a bit too close to the airport for my liking. Parking was good and it can be accessed via guaguas (autobus). There are Shops, Bar/Restaurants, Public telephones and a pleasant promenade so it’s nevertheless a beach worth a visit.The second beach is in a semi-dev  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 13 Lanzarote Beaches - Tinajo
 
Tinajo is located in the central north part of Lanzarote and considered by many to have the best surfing conditions in Europe.Elements of the coastline have become synonymous with the term “The Hawaii of Europe”.The first of two beaches takes us to La Santa, in a village by the same name and developed around a natural lagoon that borders a little peninsula. This relatively quiet area is dominated by the internationally famous hotel and sports complex, known as Club La Santa, a ‘winter’ training ground for international sports stars.If you are into active sports or simply want to maintain your fitness regime whilst on holiday or if you want to pamper yourself   (read full article)

 Article Title :: 12 Lanzarote Beaches - Tias
 
Tias, another of the islands seven municipalities, includes the islands main holiday resort of Puerto Del Carmen and boasts a succession of beaches, along its 6km of southern coastline, separated only by short rocky elements. In this article, we review seven of the best beaches in this area of the island.Our first of three man-made (and thus ‘family-friendly’) beaches in the Peurto del Carmen area is known as the Playa Grande. This is the most central beach and has a magnificent promenade of bars and restaurants running along its kilometre of golden sand (100m wide). The placid waters is this part of the island make it ideal for windsurfing. If you don’t want to use the   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Family Adventures on the Salmon River Rafting
 
Toil and water mix on a raft trip; A Salmon River run offers something for the whole family, with berry picking, campfire singing, cave exploring, even pedicures. By John Muncie When the cool, deep shaft of the abandoned copper mine ended in a wall of rock, guide Mike Thurbert turned to the group and said, "Turn off your flashlights." We were about 100 yards into an Idaho hillside. The lights went off as instructed and, in a moment of solemnity, 19-year-old Thurbert quietly asked us to contemplate the phenomenon of utter darkness. For that instant, each of us was an island, alone in the black tunnel. Then somebody made a spooky ooooo-ing so  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Hurricanes and Out Door Camping
 
Many people who go out door camping are careful not to take any electronics with them such as a cell phone, pagers or even radios. They want to leave the hustle and bustle of the world behind them while they are camping in the wilderness. This makes a lot of sense, however it does not make too much sense during the Atlantic tropical hurricane season and you should be advised to at least take a radio and check-in once a day on the weather.Mother nature can be ruthless during major storms and during the 2005 Atlantic tropical hurricane season we saw such storms in the fury they can provide. We also noted the 2006 Atlantic tropical hurricane season is also going to be a real big hu  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Summertime: Get to Know the Bugs That Buzz From Cousin to Cousin
 
I love the poem Summer by Walter Dean Myers.The line "Bugs buzzin' from cousin to cousin" puts a smile on my overheated face. Hot summer days and nights are perfect for studying all kinds of insects.Since I take steps to make myself inedible to insects (see my article How to Enjoy a Tick-Free Nature Experience) it's much easier to observe and get to know the ones that crawl or fly across my path.Here is a list of insects you're likely to see in northeast North America and some interesting facts about each as spring turns into summer:Ant Lion: The larval stage of the lacewing fly, this million-year-old insect distinguishes itself by digging conica  (read full article)
