Galapagos Day Two
The alarm went off at 5am. Groan! Unfortunately you have to get up early if you want to see the sunrise. Mark, Kev and headed down to the dock with bleary eyes, waiting for the pelicans to wake up and for the sun to peek its way above the horizon.
We stayed there for several hours, by now we had taken oooh, about 1,000 photographs in less than 24 hours
In the afternoon, we headed off on the one hour walk to Tortuga bay. However, it took us so long because of all our stops to take photos of birds, lizards and cacti, that we never actually made it there. We got within about 100 yards and we were informed that we had to turn around and go back because the beach closes at six o’clock!
Never mind, there was always tomorrow. Besides, we now had 2,000 photos to go through!!!
