2018 Canary Islands
Being a teacher has its perks. Recently, we had a week of school holidays in March. I found some cheap flights to the Canary Islands and decided to spend 7 days there. We started with 4 days on Fuerteventura followed by 3 days on Tenerife.

I haven't had time to write the blog yet...I just managed to edit the pics and upload them onto the blog. Maybe I can work on the writing on Easter Sunday.

Let's start off with a bang with some panoramic views...

Did you expect me to go anywhere without catching some new species? There was a bit of overlap in species with the Mediterranean, so it wouldn't exactly be easy to do well on with a large number of new species in the Canaries. However, with a bit of determination, I did catch 21 new species Smile

Caution - Objects in picture are smaller than they appear. I am genetically predisposed to make fish look bigger.
