Arguineguin Walk June 13 2020

08:00am Walk

We woke up at 08:00am, keen to get out for some fresh morning air when there were less people about which is important as we are observing social distancing due to the current Coronavirus safety measures.

We stopped by the Unide supermarket and there was a reminder on the wall to wear a mask. It’s obligatory here to wear masks in public places and shops, and where 2 metres distance cannot be guaranteed. It’s sad to see people are still disrespecting this.

The last few days have been a bit stormy looking but still warm, although it would be good to have a nice downpour to clear the air.

Passing through the Ancora Center we headed for the bridge, which had a great view of the main road that goes through the village.

We headed over the bridge towards La Lajilla beach lookout point. A photogenic little dove was sitting on the railings with a the beach and Mount Teide of Tenerife in the distance.

After our encounter we continued on the top road up towards Puesta de Sol, down the stairs to the promenade with a stormy view of Marañuelas beach. The sun was trying hard to shine through the clouds and the temperature was very pleasant for early morning.

As we ended our walk we stopped by the memorial stone for the Mogán citizens who died tragically in a plane crash on Spanair flight JK5022 from Madrid to Gran Canaria on August 20th 2008. Many people walk past this memorial and don’t realise what it is.
