Roundabout Spotting in Fuerteventura

On our annual winter holiday to the sunshine in the Canary Island of Fuerteventura we went for a day trip to the capital town Puerta del Rosario. A pleasant little place where we has an excellent lunch (superb seafood soup in the El Mirador restaurant if you're passing). The local ayuntamiento seem very keen on public art with statues and sculptures on every street corner and, of course, the roundabouts. These were all snapped on the short walk back to the bus station.

The goat is the symbol of the the island, being the only beast that can survive in the barren desert landscape. To the left of the photograph is an establishment from which we were ejected having assumed it was a dive bar but it turned out to be the "cannabis exchange"
