Into the cruising mode

Well, we’re well settled into the cruising mode. After and omlettes with Anna’s fresh baked bread for breakfast, we fell into the dinghy for a snorkelling trip into a channel between the islets. A parks official tried to chase us away, insisting that we could only snorkel with a group and a guide. We were not deterred. Today’s wildlife checklist – 2 reef sharks, one green turtle, a spotted ray, a cluster of little Galapagos penguins, some languid sea lions and heaps of blue-footed boobies.

Benoit, our French friend from Bahia Caraquez, departed with 3 crew for the Marquesas in the lightest of southerly breeze, and we are now alone in this beautiful bay.

Alone in the bay

Tomorrow we go on a proper diving trip to Los Toneles, and then, for Anna we seek out the flamingos on a coastal lagoon.

We’ve got heaps of pictures but uploading them will have to wait until we have an internet connection worth its salt.
