The Bizarre Bathing of the Goats in Puerto de la Cruz

From first light goats are driven from the Orotava Valley into the centre of Puerto de la Cruz old town (getting stuck in a goat traffic jam is somehow more bearable than the usual kind) and shown their spot on the harbour’s cobbled beach. Unlike sheep, the goats stick to their spot throughout making it relatively easy work for the dogs keeping a watchful eye over them whilst their compadres are dragged (kicking and bleating) one by one to be dunked in the calm harbour waters (blue at the start of the day, a sort of muddy brown after the goat bathing is over).
