    54. Galapagos 6 - Heading to Santa Cruz

    October 17, 2019 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    Before leaving San Cristobal, we headed to the highlands for a hike to Laguna El Junco, one of the few freshwater lakes on the island, and also visited the island's east side beach of Puerto Chino. A few pix attached.

    Thursday morning we caught the 2 hour ferry ride to Santa Cruz. Aka - boat ride from hell. There were about 30 of us packed in like sardines with luggage stowed in the bow. People in the middle of the boat had no air, people in the back were cold and wet. I joined a handful who were tossing up their breakfast. Craig had his plastic bag ready, bit didn't need to use it. The ride left us both dizzy and nauseous for the rest of the day. Needless to say, we have sea sickness pills for our next ferry ride.

    All that said, we recovered and moved on!
