Just returned from a snorkel trip where we swam with sharks and stingrays, also saw some beautiful coral gardens. Nap time!
Veggie reataurant - good stuff!
Up at 2 AM to head to the airport for a 511 flight. Should be in my hotel in San Pedro by noon tomorrow!
We had a wonderful champagne sunset and farewell dinner. What a wonderful and inspiring week, full of warm and friendly National geographic crew and staff, and fellow cruise mates! Here's to new friendships!

What a day! Got up early to do a photography tour on North Seymour Island, and it was amazing! We saw dozens of Blue Footed Boobys and it was everything I had hoped it would be! They are amazing creatures full of crazy dance moves, interesting mating rituals, and loving parenting. Just so cool! We also saw several Frigates, also heaving into courtship. I was even blessed by one who flew over and took a dump. Leason learned: do not stare up at birds with your mouth open. Doh! We then headed to Rabida where we had our first snorkel. Fish were large and plentiful. I have never seen parrot fish so huge - and that's no fish story! We headed back to the ship to change, then back to the island for evening walks. I missed the first boat of photographers, and then ended up being on a zodiac with me and 3 NG photographers. Talk about the photography brain trust. We had a Sea Lion encounter, where the literally approached us withing feet. They came so close I laid still and just let them pass. So cool. We then did some jump shot sillouettes, were ready to head down the beach when on of the photographers spotted a rather rare bird: the Vermillion Flycatcher. These guys were so excited - and they see this stuff every day - so I knew it was something special. All in all an amazing day!Read more
