Ok, I cannot upload pictures onto the iPad and then onto this website.

The connection is only good enough for words and funny enough putting things on Facebook. Not sure how that works?

Anyway we are having a fabulous time and the weather is glorious. We thought that this would be a very relaxing end to our holiday but it could not be further from the truth.

Our first day was a 5:30 start. We went out to go in zodiacs around the island that we are moored next to and went looking at birds and various fish including a small hammer head shark. The guide tried to convince us that they are vegetarian but we are not convinced. Back to the boat for breakfast and then a safety briefing before we went snorkelling.

The water was full of fish. We saw so many and I have videod our time in the water.

After this back to the boat for more food and ice cream and then in the afternoon we went for another snorkelling trip with a short walk on the ‘Chinese hat’ island.

Had a slight disagreement with the guide in the afternoon when he left us to fend with a seas by ourselves and then complained that we were not keeping up with him. He eventually apologised and kept the group together and made sure we were not in any danger.

We had lots of young seals coming up to us and playing on the beach in front of us. It was quite magical and a great day for us.

After we went back to the boat to relax and prepare for another meal! Not sure I can keep up with this amount of food. I am sure I will try!

Galápagos is such a great place nd we are having a superb time.

Only a few days left before we come home so we are feeling rather mixed in emotion.

Tomorrow is going to be more snorkelling and walking around the volcanos. I think we will be shattered by the end of this trip.

See you soon.
