Monday, September 24, 2012 – San Cristobel Island
Nice breakfast, then we piled into the pangas for a tour around (and through) Cerro Brujo. This huge rock was formed volcanically and has eroded areas and other cracks that have filled with lava. We went deep into a couple of the cracks and through and arch that reminded me of Percé. Along the way we saw some juvenile pelicans, a marine iguana, thousands of Sally-Light-Foot crabs, a great blue heron, frigate birds, sea lions and a flying blue-footed booby. We couldn’t see his feet though. We had a wet landing and walked along a white beach among sea lions. We found a female in labour. Usually baby sea lions are born very quickly. This, however, was a breech birth, not going well. We watched for awhile, but the baby’s flippers stopped moving and the mother was still struggling when we left. We enjoyed some snorkeling from the beach, swimming with the sea lions some of the time. We didn’t use the wetsuits since the water was fairly warm. Then into the pangas and back to the Flamingo. We were greeted with party sandwiches, vanilla cake and juice. A half hour or so later we had a hearty lunch. No fear of experiencing hunger on this boat!
