Galapagos and Ecuador, Dec 2013

Wow, what a fun vacation! We started off in Quito and visited the city for two days, seeing the churches, the mountains, the equator, the volcano craters, and having a great meal on the roof of a restaurant overlooking the city at night. Very neat.
Then it was time for the islands! We met another couple, Ben and Jo, right off and spent most of the week doing day tours with them. We snorkeled off of San Cristobal island, and swam with baby sea lions (so cute!). We ferried over to Isabela island and visited the underwater lava caves and saw white tipped sharks, equatorial penguins, and flamingos. We visited two turtle breeding hatcheries and saw ancient land turtles as well. We went diving at Gordon’s Rocks and saw a giant sunfish, several manta rays, and hammerhead sharks. And everywhere, the blue footed boobies, sea lions, iguanas, and frigate birds.
It was a great vacation and words don’t do it justice, so I’ll just add some photos- they speak for themselves.
