Galapagos Islands – Another Day in Paradise!

Being in the Galapagos is like being in a nature documentary.  You can see the wildlife up close and personal, and the animals are completely unafraid of you.  Penguins come and play with you while you´re snorkeling.  The sea lions follow your panga.  And you are steps away from blue footed boobies dancing to attract a mate.

My sister Annie and I spent 8 days on board the M/Y Letty.  Our two guides, Gabby and Ceci, were wonderful, as were the rest of the people in our group.  Every day offered a completely different experience.  Not only does each island have a distinct ecosystem, each part of each island is incredibly different with different animals.

Here are just a few of the thousands of photos we took.
