    ... great. Along with the many fish, we saw a shark (which I got on video - not a great one, but I didn't want to get closer!). A few others saw a manta ray. But the highlight was a fantastic, playful interaction with sea lions - one in particular. One sea lion pup was really playing with the group, swimming through us, under us, around us, then away and back again.

    Jude and I hung around a little cove while many others swam ...

    ... two metres across, yet a graceful swimmer.

    We headed back to the boat for lunch and cruised to a new location while we ate - this time Rabida island. After lunch, we went back out for more snorkelling. We tried to do the snorkling sessions just before and after lunch so that the sunlight would be at its maximum and the light in the water better for viewing. Almost right away, a reef shark and a sea lion ...

    ... We started walking and it wasn't long before we spotted the fregata birds nesting and the males showing off their giant red balloons in an effort to woo the females. The sounds they made when they blew the air out were really something as well. After some time we even spotted some blue-footed boobies up close. The whole walk took less than two hours but was amazing. So much wildlife and great photos and great views. Definitely a worthy tour. When we got back on the boat, ...

    So i slept in, big deal. I had planned on heading out very early but i ended up going for my new breakfast (fruit) across the street. Petra was here eating so i joined her, she decided to do an 18 km bike ride this morning, not surprising to me as she chose 16 months in one of the coldest places on earth. We ate and decided to meet up around noon for a trip to Los Cuerto, which was a deep crack in the cliff ...

    ... made my way to a little pier where i watched a couple of big birds chase an iguana under the watchful eyes of a seal. I kept walking and a nice hotel manager gave me a map and showed me the way to the Darwin research institute. A little walk, about 1km and all the buildings were closed but you can still view the giant tortoises in their enclosures, as well as rare iguanas. It was very hot so i decided to head back, bumping into the same Icelandic couple i met on the ...
