Sunday, September 23, 2012 – Guayaquil to Galapagos
We were up early and Mabell got us to the airport and found our escort, Erica. She accompanied us to the airport on San Cristobel Island, where our guide Pepe took over and got us on board the Flamingo I, our home for the next week. The accommodations are a bit tight, but it’s all very comfortable. After lunch, we spent some time finding wetsuits and swim fins to fit, then had an evacuation drill. We put the equipment to good use, snorkeling at one of the beaches nearby on San Cristobel. We saw turtles, sand dollars, stingrays and numerous other kinds of fish. Sea lions were everywhere, and the water was cool enough that we were glad to have the wetsuits. Back on board we were served a snack and juice, rinsed our equipment and suits and finished unpacking. Pepe suggested the sundeck as the best point to see The Sleeping Lion (or “Kicker”) Rock as we cruised around it. Then we proceeded to another small island where we anchored. Along the way some frigate birds cruised above the sundeck, putting on quite a show. We saw boobies and various other birds as well as turtles in the water. Dinner was lovely and we all retired early.
