Goats and Squirrels in Fuerteventura

A little low on blogging-inspiration lately, I had a look through my photos, and I realized I never posted about the animals I encountered on my trip to Fuerteventura in May. Fuerteventura was so relaxing. So beautiful. There wasn't all that much to see/do, as other Canary Islands, but the beaches! Oh the beaches.
I had only seen such beaches in the Caribbean before. 

But a lovely surprise was to encounter some animals on some of these beaches. 
For instance, on one beach there were loads and loads of these: 

So cute! They were clearly used to people as they came straight over 
in hope of a few breadcrumbs. They are from our hands.

And as we were having a "hike" over the enormous sand dunes, 
suddenly we saw a whole hoard of goats! 

They were so calm, just walking from plant to plant eating a little, then moving on. 

So fascinating and beautiful to watch. 
We just sat down there in the sands and watched them for ages. 

I love animals, but being able to see them like this, apparently happy and (care)free is just wonderful!
