Day : 333
Temperature : 33 degrees
Weather : Hot, hot, hot!

On our last night aboard the Deep Blue the passengers sat on the top deck as we sailed back towards Santa Cruz, accompanied by dozens of frigate birds and the odd pelican. When the sun went down we all had cocktails with the crew and reflected on the week.

The following morning we all exchanged emails and contact details and before departing the Deep Blue. Even though we'd had a great week, I couldn't help feeling very insanely envious of the next group of divers who would be boarding the boat that week! We spent the day in San Cristobal and the following morning caught the speedboat back to Santa Cruz.

We've spent the past few days here catching up on emails and relaxing...well it's sooo hot here that it's difficult to do anything else. We met up with some passengers from one of the other dive boats that went to Darwin and Wolf and discovered that they hadn't seen the whaleshark at Cousins Rock or had any Silky sharks under their boat at Darwin....I think we were very lucky! In addition, without meaning to cause offence, I think the group on our boat were much more fun!!!

So here we are in Santa Cruz. We have changed our flights out of the Galapagos for the fourth time I think, and are now leaving a day later, because the Antarctic Austrians (aka Sylvia and Christian) are coming to the Galapagos today! It's been two months since we last saw them in Antarctica, and so we are going to have loads to catch up on!

Well that's all for now folks,

Will blog again in a couple of days, meanwhile I'll leave you with a few shots of the Deep Blue.
