Hello Mariusz,
The title of your photo fits the boy's attitude very well indeed.
I think the story continues like this:
The boy confidently runs to the water. Once there, he puts one foot in the water and is shocked that the ocean is much colder than expected. Very quickly he turns around, runs up the beach and shouts, "Mom, let's go to the swimming pool."
Frankly, I know people who often go on vacation to a warm destination, spend a lot of time in their hotel around the pool and never ever get to a beach.
Although we see little land in this photo and there are still a few others visible in the distance, the picture has something of a desolate island.
At the back left we also see mountains.
Do these still belong to Lanzarote or to another Canary Island?
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: Mountains on the horizon

Hi Paul,
The volcanoes on the right hand side are on Lanzarote yet but very far on the horizon more to the left there are some distant peaks which belong to Fuerteventura Island already. Fuerteventura is very close to Lanzarote.
Kind regards,

Thank you Mariusz,

With that I immediately know that it is impossible to see any other Canary Islands than Fuerteventura from Lanzarote.

Kind regards,
