On our last day on the island, we had to check out of our hotel at 10am and we weren't flying till 2am the next day! Fortunately we had our hire car so we loaded up and headed off for the north part of the island which we had not seen yet. This was topped off with a visit to Las Palmas,the capital which we had not expected much from ,but it turned out to be a fun place with plenty to see and do...we visited the old quarter called Vegueta and saw the cathedral and the small Museo Colon where Columbus stayed on his way to the Americas. It is a lovely little museum very picturesque and full of interesting things.Then we walked along the pedestrian street downtown decked with Xmas lights and had a great day .Finally we went to the Playa de las Canteras beachfront where we had another paella before heading off to the airport.
