The Galapagos Islands Day 8 - May 27, 2017

Amazing how much crud we bring back on us. This is what came out of our swimming suits from yesterday afternoon’s snorkeling .

Easy to guess what day this is. Departure day from the Galapagos.

Linda is the most organized person I have ever know. That’s why I start worrying when I see her pawing through something. Luckily she soon found whatever it was she was looking for. Relieved Bob.

Just like when we arrived. It’s his bench and nobody better try and sit here.

Another packed minibus ride.

Remember those cut sections of tree they use for fence posts that sprout? The ones I wrote about a week or so ago? These have sprouted and grown.

And these have really grown.

Tortoise sighting.

Tortoises everywhere.




What happens when a tortoise suddenly see you. Video is 1 1/2 minutes long, the tortoise’s reaction is near the end.

The Galapagos Bee. The only bee found in the Galapagos.

Messy eater.

Where’s the soap? Tortoises can not swim, so they stay in shallow water.



A BIG girl. Or Guy. Who can tell?

Since he’s resting, he must be home.

Deep fried plantain and cheese balls for lunch. Very good indeed. Not our typical food, but is it ever good.

Leaving on a jet plane, don’t know if we’ll be back again. Then again, we just might. So big of a world, so little time.

Goodbye Galapagos!

Hello Andes!

Piled high, but that is the luggage of 13 people who have just spent a week in the Galapagos.

A bit of a problem. It seems a group of Americans didn’t pay attention to the weight limit of the elevator. Now they are stuck. The fact Linda and I are here taking the photo eliminates us.

And neither was Sofy one of them, but then she is from Ecuador so couldn’t have been in the elevator. Who was on it? We’d never tell. Besides we just wanted to get to our room and crash. It had been another long day. Note to self: You can rest when you get home
