Today was another early morning. We woke up at 4:30 am to take a walk on the boardwalk to watch the sunrise. This proved to be another beautiful sunrise that included sea lions swimming and iguanas watching nearby.
After sunrise I took some to sit and have a coffee in town while the others went for another hike. I wanted to stay out of the sun before the afternoon activities. But I did take some time to wander the town and the beach.
But the afternoon activity was definitely a highlight! It started out rough when the boat made a couple stops in the middle of the ocean to snorkel with a manta ray. Fortunately these were short stops and we made a trip to a less rocky bay where we ate lunch and then walked around some rocks filled with blue footed boobies (rare birds). After our walk we got back in the boat and made a couple more snorkelling stops filled with a couple sea horses, lots of fish, huge sea turtles, and sharks!
After snorkelling we went back into town for drinks by the beach and dinner.Read more
