|The Galapagos routine is a good one. Each night we sail to a new island. In the morning we land and explore for a few hours. A mid morning snorkel precedes lunch. Then another afternoon walk followed by an activity like snorkeling or kayaking. All day the ship's cook stuffs us with delicious meals.|
Go to Espanola Island for the albatrosses. These birds waddle to the cliffs for take off. Once airborne, their huge wingspans keep them gliding in the air without much flapping. A procession of albatrosses lumbering along the ground towards the runway is a sight to see.
Flamingoes on the Galapagos? Blown here generations ago, they're stranded on the islands. They draw lake bed abstracts with their feet on Floreana Island.
