Favorite thing: In the Galápagos Islands you get so close to nature the experieince is surreal. Like , when would you ever get to see two love struck sea turtles mating!!!
Favorite thing: This is a sunset on the Equator in the Galapagos Islands. The sun goes down fast . We saw no dolphins on the return voyage to Santa Cruz.
Favorite thing: OK . The islands are dry and barren but you are still able to find pockets of semi tropical landscape .
In addition to tour groups jostling for position at the dock the locals are part of the action . There is no harbour master .
In general , everyone seemed to be acting in a polite manner.
Favorite thing: The wonderous archipelago is located 600 miles of the coast of Ecuador in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Iguanas are everywhere . You get used to them within 15 minutes, even the big ones . They sit on rocks that no human
would really walk on so there is no conflict of interest.
I just took the picture, because the turtle next to me has my number. 27. :))
Every turtle gets a number with a different colour. (In order to get the grown turtles back on the right island)
Land Iguanas can be found on a few islands.
They are vegetarians, subsisting mostly on the fruit and pads of Opuntia cactus.
Those unique big red craps are everywhere to be found on the coast lines of the islands.
Like every animal of the Galapagos islands they don't really care about people.
Natural history enthusiasts must head to the Galapagos archipelago. The fearless animals will astound you.
Fondest memory: One of my fondest memories is swimming with the sea lions and sailing from island to island.
Visit the Charles Darwin Research Station. The photo is of Bartolome Island.
Fondest memory: The tamenest of the animals.
