As we approached a small hill, we heard a strange call, and our naturalist became excited. "I have a treat for you," she said.
Here's the lovely countryside on Santa Cruz Island.
And one of the highlights of my trip...a chance to sit down with a Galapagos tortoise. The fields near the restaurant where we had lunch on Santa Cruz were full of these amazing creatures. I sat down with this one, and we looked at each other for about twenty minutes until it started to rain.
What a gorgeous animal. I miss him!
