another perfect beach in Galapagos
Ok, so we got to the Galapagos archipelago yesterday lunch time. We boarded our small-but-perfectly formed boat, met our fellow cabin mates and the crew and had a tasty dinner.

On board with us there are a couple german girls, a finnish couple, a couple of danish gents and another couple - the bloke is from manchester and his wife is columbian. Everyone is chilled and friendly.

Our guide for the week is a leather-skinned wiry old dude who's been here about 30 years and is a kind of cross between lionel blair / bob monkhouse type character and a south american bar owner. he's a dude.

First day we went to a beach and saw frigate birds swarming a fighting over some fish, we also saw pelicans, a flamingo and some marine iguanas.

We had a nice tea and and I fell asleep at about 8.10pm! Fell asleep I should say in the tiniest bunk, in the tiniest cabin EVER! After 4 days it's all change and we can go into the slightly bigger room.

As I write today we've just been snorkelling with Sea lions, sharks, turtles and tons of fish and this morning we hung out with a whole sea lion colony. the animals aren't a bit scared of you and one sea lion decided to have a bit of a nibble on my elbow!

just chilling now, eating pop corn, drinking beer and watching the frigates circling our ship as the cook throws out scraps for them

What an awesome experience! I would love to swim with sea lions. I definitely hope to visit the Galapagos Islands some day. :)
