Travel Galapagos Day 2 - Isla Lobos

[As with the other posts, scroll down to the Photo Gallery section for even more pictures than are featured in the post, or go directly to the gallery page]

Isla Lobos is a small island just off of San Cristóbal Island, where lots of sea lions tend to hang out. It's also got interesting candelabra cactus and, of course, more birds.

Waking up on a boat definitely doesn't suck.

The GPS track includes the short panga rides to and from the island.

I shot this panorama of the Nemo III from the landing spot. It's a nice boat.

Sea Lions

This big sea lion male didn't seem to want to wake up. He lumbered out of the bushes on to the beach, yawned, then lumbered onto some rocks in the sun and went back to sleep.


We got our first look at the green warbler finch.

More blue-footed boobies display their dramatically blue feet.

And frigate birds continue to be dramatic.

Marine Iguanas!

On Balance

The pickup dock had a railing, so naturally Hilary got in a front balance - first one in the Galapagos! Much to Jeffo's amusement.
