My Last Nature Walk in the Galapagos- North Seymour Island

North Seymour Island is very close to Baltra Island and the airport so we were able to get in this walk before heading to the airport at 9am.  Surprisingly, this was one of my favorite nature walks even though it was mostly about the birds.  First we were greeted by some sleepy sea lions. How cute is that furry face!!! Mostly we saw the Magnificent and Great Frigate Birds flying around Read More

Underwater Safari in the Galapagos

The underwater Galapagos wildlife was really something to see.  Despite multiple back/back of legs sunburns from these snorkeling excursions (will I ever learn?!), the twice daily swims were my favorite parts of the trip. Another couple I was with had a Go Pro underwater camera system.  While the pictures were great, their system leaked and busted the camera (sad face!).  I love, love, love my underwater camera!
