Explorer Beastie Sunbathing on a Cactus

Hurrah! Thanks to an eagle-eyed Beastie fan on my Facebook page, I’ve been able to trace Explorer Beastie to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands! No wonder he’s looking so relaxed!

You know, I had always written Lanzarote off as an island of packed beaches and sprawling resort hotels, and I have to say that I’m surprised by what Explorer Beastie has found on his travels. It looks like he has definitely strayed from the beaten track…

…and discovered everything from crystal clear rock pools…

… to prickly cactus trees…

… to out-of-the-way wine bodegas.

He also seems to have had no trouble finding quiet beaches there, either…

… which he can claim all for himself!

All the same, I hope he comes home soon. I need someone to accompany me to the new Muppets film.

See you next time… I have some freshly-hatched Beasties for you to meet!

    1. Just lizards, I think… but then he is there off-season. I must ask if he’d consider doing a guest spot on my blog – it would definitely free up more knitting time for me! Also, thanks for dropping in on my Facebook page! I’m off to track down yours!

    1. Definitely! He’s certainly going to fnd a lot of new friends waiting for him when he gets home, anyway! And since I now have two votes for Explorer Beastie writing down his own adventures, I suppose it might indeed be time to let him speak for himself…
