Galapagos Islands, Ecuador (Espanola - Gardner Bay and Suarez Point)

Overnight we travelled from Floreana east to Espanola and moored in Gardner Bay and after breakfast we went ashore on zodiacs and walked along the beach (very white and sandy) where there were sea lions and marine iguanas. Just beside the beach were a number of birds. After our walk we swam and did some snorkelling. Today, although the water was clear, there were not many fish to be seen. Back to the boat for lunch and a break then we sailed to another part of the island - Suarez Point - and went out again at 3:30pm. At this place we walked along rocky paths and there were many nesting albatrosses, Nazca Boobies, Galapagos Hawks, sea lions, marine iguanas and other birds and lizards. The walk today was around the cliffs and was really good. It was quite hot, probably about 34C, with a bit of a breeze. When we came back to the boat about 5:45pm, we sat and had a couple of drinks and chatted to some of the other passengers. Then it was dinner - the last night in the Galapagos. We also had a briefing about tomorrow when we fly back to Quito to rejoin our trip on Saturday. We will have a couple more days to explore Quito before then.
