WESTERN SHORE OF ISABELA
As we were in the small zodiac boat headed to the island, we passed a plastic water bottle floating. It was obvious the tour guide and the boat driver saw it, it was less then two feet away as we were passing it. I had to ask them to stop and go back to pick it up. The crew person driving the boat seemed a bit annoyed at having to even bother with it.
"The Galapagos Penguin (Spheniscus mendiculus) is a penguin endemic to the Galapagos Islands. It is the only penguin that lives north of the equator in the wild; it can survive due to the cool temperatures resulting from the Humboldt Current and cool waters from great depths brought up by the Cromwell Current.

During the evening Simon and I stayed up after everyone else went to bed. I enjoy conversations with people when I meet someone with a similar philosophy. Simon and Audree are on this trip with their two year old girl, Jade, and their three month old baby girl, Pennylove. They have a lot of experience traveling and this journey will be for two months before returning home to Canada.
