1: The Galapagos Islands Ecuador, S.A. May - June 2010 Copywright 2010 Allen Family, Inc. All rights reserved. Published in the United States.

2: DAY 1 Delayed for a day in Miami due to the eruption of an Ecuadorian volcano, and very disappointed.

3: But Lindblat Guide Lynn Fowler (niece of Jim Fowler) made sure we got to Quito, then to Baltra, and finally to Santa Cruz where we enjoyed a resort before boarding the ship.

4: DAY 2 Here we saw the Island of Floreana where the green sea turtles nest, and many flamingos and other shorebirds live.

6: Day 3 We loaded into the zodiacs and toured the caves and shoreline near Punta Vicente Roca before snorkeling.

7: After lunch we crossed over the equator while being entertained by Fausto, Blake and the younger sailors.

8: Later the same day, we were able to get up close and personal with the wildlife at Punta Espinosa.

10: This baby sea lion had latched on to another mother as he waited for his to get back. Sea lion mothers will typically not adopt other mother's babies.

11: Day 4 Peering into one of the two pit craters called Los Gememlos on the most inhabited island of Santa Cruz.

12: Spending time at the Charles Darwin Research Center and National Park where the giant tortoise breeding program is located. Also home to "Lonesome George".

13: And ending the day in the highlands in the middle of the tortoise migratory route.....

14: ..... before hanging out at the island's fish market. Please don't touch the animals......

15: Day 5 On Cerro Dragon, we were fortunate enough to run right into a land iguana which are one of the few animals that are fearful of humans. This one walked up to us and took an interest in our shoes.

18: Day 6 Our final day with an early morning walk on the volcanic islet of Bartolome.

19: Down time on the ship with friends, family and Carlos. Thanks to all for making this such an unforgettable trip.

21: An unbelievable experience!!!!
