Galapagos Trips - 6

Hi, Here is a view of our next island from out ship.

The small boat is typical of the craft used by tourists for their visit. Typically, they carry about 20 passengers and one naturalist.

Swallow Tailed Gulls were nesting on the island.

Here again, Cactus found a foothold in the lava.

This sea lion is completely unfazed by our presence.

I am not sure what kind of bird this chick is but I think there were a lot of Boobies nesting here.

Here is a Swallow Tailed Gull and its Chick.

A small lava cone rises above the island it helped to create.

Land Iguanas were very common on the island (above and 3 below).

This photo was taken by my wife, Ruthe, and

this one by son in law Bill.

Bill also got this sea lion in a big yawn,

a Galapagos Flamingo and

this Whimbrel.

After our shore excursions the bridge was open to visitors.  I joined Ellen, Bill, Scott and Ryan (above and below).

Thanks for looking.
