Sailing Adventures
27th Mar 2011
Galapagos National Park

We were up around 7:30 and after coffee, breakfast and showers we were ready for the day’s adventure, Charles Darwin Research Center and Galapagos National Park. There wasn’t too much to see at the Research Center, just a building listed as the Interpretive Center. We walked through reading all the information, since it was in Spanish and English. The trail through the National Park was 1.3 kilometers and had various buildings with different information on the animals of the Galapagos. The primary exhibit was the tortoise breeding program. They had different fenced areas where they would put one male and three females or two males and seven females. You could walk right next to the tortoises; they were smart and rested in the shade. We got a lot of pictures. The next exhibit was land iguanas. They keep them in separate areas because they are very territorial. They are supposed to be the largest land iguanas. On the way out to the park we stopped at the fish market to watch the guys filet the day’s catch. There was a bunch of pelicans and one sea lion that were looking for scraps. We were back at the town square stopped at the juice bar for some liquid refreshment, and were back on the boat by 1:30 in time for a nap.
