Camel Ride on the Beach!!!

I enjoyed my camel ride in the Sahara so much that I wanted to do it again...on the beach!

The Atlantic Ocean and the beaches of Essaouira were the perfect backdrop. (Shout out to Brahim for being the photographer!)

The guide even made the camel run for part of my trip. I'm sure we weren't going very fast, but I bounced up and down and shrieked quite a bit.

This is me giving my camel some love after the ride. The man who took my money said the camel's name was Cappuccino.

All of my attention wasn't enough to keep Cappuccino from yawning.

So, we had a contest to see who could open their mouth the widest. I'm not sure who won...

I'm surprised how cute they are. I was under the impression that they were smelly and a little frightening. Great photos!
