Frigate bird on the pull on Seymour Island

I have just got off my ridicoulously small cruise ship after what they call a 4 days cruise, when really is only 2 and a half...

I have not enjoyed the rocking of the boat at all, and still now sitting on the chair in this internet cafe i can feel still the rockin of the sea which is making me so sick..I have not slept properly in 3 nights, but I just gone crazy and booked two more  days trip to go to see Isabella...

I have seen so many see lions and yet every time I see one I have to take 20 photos, same with frigate birds and pelicans..everything is just so colourful, big and amazing..

Two days  ago I went snorkelling around Sombrero Chino. I though nothing could beat the emotion of snorkellin in the Red Sea, but while I was observing the white sand, I came across about 100 red huge starfish.

.my heart stopped for a minute trying to realised if I was dreaming or I was still actually swimming. The following day we went visiting Bartolomeo Island: everything is a big rock, black, red, even green. YOu can still see the way the lava ran down forming the island hundreds of years ago...but what amaze me the most was swimming on top of those dry and cold lava formation, only imagining how it could have been when it was happening..those hot red rivers coming across the cold blue ocean and slowly getting solid on the white sand...

While I kept on day dreaming on my fantasy, my eyes got caught by a very fast big fish...I then realised, it was not a fish, but a pinguin, looking for his lunch among the skool of fishes, and driven by curiosity coming to see me...I was about 10 cm away from him. My heart racing one more time, and I was so tempted to touch thouse cushioned little feet..but I learned that is better if animals stays away from human so i put my arms back just enjoying the little fella swimming quick away....

Is this  insasiable feeling of wanting to see more and more normal? Hope so...on the other hand in case I will never be back in here I have to do as much as I can possibly can..
