There are surprises around every corner on the Galapagos. One morning we climbed the hill above the red sand beach.
A Pelican dove head first into the ocean then floated along while we snorkelled close by.
Besides the giant land tortoises there are some very large sea turtles that seem to want to swim right up to me. Thanks to Rob for this photo as I was too busy getting out of its way.
And then this lone flamingo walked right up to us on the beach. It’s a juvenile so quite pale coloured. Not even the slightest concern for humans.
Every day we do a short hike, then a snorkel; then after lunch the same. It can be quite exhausting and there haven’t been too many nights we’ve stayed up past nine! And not just us old folks.
