... by people. They are so fragile that if they are even turned over the baby tortious will die! See the photo of the two week old tortoise and the eggs. Back on the boat to flit over to Isabela island, it's about another two hour ride on our powerful ocean going boat. Full throttle all the way it's bumpy but lovely. We arrive at idlic Harbour with a beautiful white sandy beach and a lot of activity approx 2,500 people live in this island. We stayed ...

... up until about 11pm booking flights for Colombia and other random things. We had organised a taxi for 5.15 am to take us to the airport. I stayed up reading some stuff about the galapagos and discovered that we would have to be at the airport 2 hours early and pre fill in some forms online before entering the galapagos.
