Weather : Sunny with Rainy Showers

Another early rise at about 5am! Groan! We all got up early once again for sunrise which wasn't so spectacular today. But we did find a great spot for iguana and crab watching, which happens to be round the back of the police station, and fortunately the policemen don't seem to bothered about 3 gringos turning up with loads of photography equipment and silly o'clock in the morning....actually, I think they think that we are mad.

After not much of a sunrise we headed once again to the fish market where the resident sea lion and the numerous pelicans were dutifully waiting for the fishermen to unload their catch. Every time we visit the fish market you really cannot believe you's a crazy sight, and their surely cannot be many places in the world where you are virtually tripping over sea lions, pelicans and herons.

Anyway, in the afternoon I spent several hours flicking through the gazillions of photos that we have taken and trying to do some blogging whilst Mark and Kevin went for a wander. Mark has booked himself on a naturalist tour around Isabela for eight days, and we have finally paid all the money for our diving liveaboard and all seems good. So we are planning on staying here in Santa Cruz for another few days before going over to San Cristobal which is where our boat leaves from. If we can we will maybe visit Isabela (depending on cost) and do a couple of day trips for some snorkelling.

So that's all folks, enjoy the ever increasing number of piccies....more blogs to come soon :)
