Galapagos Day 2:

Our morning excursion was a walk around the Darwin Bay beach and cove followed by beach and snorkeling time (about 2 hours total).

Genovesa Island is a volcano that collapsed into a crater, so now it is C-shaped, and we were parked in the middle of the “C”.  Hundreds of birds were gliding on the air over the cliffs of the island.

There were lots and lots of frigate birds with their red chests all puffed out.  We saw some of them doing their wing-flapping bird-calling mating dance, and even one couple making a match.

The guides do a great job talking about the animals, how the live, and how they interact.  The paths are well marked, so it is easy to walk around afterwards for more pictures.

The snorkeling was pretty good.  The water was warm enough, so I don’t think I will be using a wetsuit on this trip.
