So after surviving a day offline (it wasn’t that bad … really) we are connected again. In the last 48 hours we traveled from Santa Cruz Island to Floreana Island and then to Isabela Island. Its been very busy.
We’ve seen giant tortoises, sea lions, blue footed boobies, frigate birds, the Galapagos Dove, white tipped reef sharks, marine iguanas and sea turtles. Red Mangrove, the resort/tour operator has made this a very relaxed trip – even though we are very busy. It is amazing.
Today, we head out in an hour to hike up a volcano. I’m not sure exactly what we will see – aside from plant and bird life. Looks like a 5 hour trip on foot. Drew is getting pretty tired, but we can’t stop her. Yesterday she snorkeled for more than an hour and a half.
We’ll write more about the excursions once we get home – here are a few pictures for now.
