We're in San Cristobal, the first island in the Galapagos where Charles Darwin stopped. Like Darwin, we're being inquisitive naturalists and we're amazed to see many of the same animals that he did in 1835. I don't think the famous and very prehistoric looking Galapagos tortoise have changed much.
We're also examining the mischievous marine iguanas
And Kai is chasing the elegant Galapagos Green Turtle
I watched the colorful yellow warbler play on the rocky ponds near the beach
And we saw the famous Chatham mockingbird, found only on this island, San Cristobal
We also laugh at the playful sea lions who are everywhere -- whether they're hanging around the playground, lounging on benches, or making their home on the stern of people's boats.
It's fantastic to be here, surrounded by such interesting animals.
