A walk above the northern shore – La Gomera (Day 2)
Spend the early morning to get my stuff together, water for hikes, a bottle of La Gomera white wine and some sun protection (optimistic me…) and left Valle Grand Rey at about 09:30 to do a short walk up in the mountains and conquer the top of La Gomera. The top was not willing to get conquered because of 9°C, really heavy winds and dripping wet clouds. So I changes planes and, because of the strong winds from the south, I went to the north, hoping for some dryer and calmer conditions.
I decided to walk a path above the northern shore, starting at Playa de la Caleta, to visit the old Muelle de Punta San Lorenzo, an abandoned dock, build in former times to load bananas.
It’s an easy walk on a well-prepared track that offers great views to the coat line and the Atlantic Ocean, always high above the northern shore. Only two steep segments need to be got over to reach the old dock side – a wonderful quite place, even if the waves break noisy below at the rocks.
