2007: The Galapagos Islands

This is the first item

Blue footed booby

In February 2007, after we had gone to Europe with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra on their tour, we went on to Ecuador, primarily so that we could visit the Galapagos Islands. We spent a couple of days in Quito, and then went on a seven-day cruise among the Galapagos Islands.

This was fascinating, and (apart from the giant tortoises, who are hopeless models as they move at about 1km/week, and like to hide in the shade under dense bushes) the wildlife proved to be very obliging. As a result I had far too many photos to sort through!
