Our first site in the Galapagos!
Our home for 5 days - the Legend II cruise ship.

The first Gecko we saw, and a beaut!
Holy crap did we see a lot of Geckos.

Our first day in the Galapagos comes to an end. Speechless.
Stingray during a breath-holding snorkel dive.
Huge, and I mean HUGE turtles were swimming right with us, dangerously close.

Rock, cliff and lava formations at the shores were wicked.

Bartolome Island. Famous.
Lunar landing, no? Looked like a moonscape above Bartolome Island.
Mountain side with silver white plants.
Turtle tracks! They lay their eggs just above the beach, and in the mornings, make their way *slowly* into the water.
Found an old skull by the trail.
If you listen closely you can hear the.... nevermind.
Hi Gecko. He was right next to the trail on our first day.
They love the sun. Geckos were my FAVORITE!
A Darwin Finch - no big whoop. Basically your average small brown bird.
