Thought I might show you the size of our room...very small as you can see. Jan and I have to go sideways to get into bed and the shower/toilet is the smallest I have ever seen. But all we have to do is sleep in it so we manage.
This morning we saw our first tortoise under water, very hard to take a photo because of the refraction of the water. We also saw a couple penguins...gee it is hard to take photos from a bouncing Zodiac (an inflatable dinghy that hold about 16 people plus the driver. We also saw a male frigate with a beautiful orange throat.
The beach at Comorant Point (the afternoon exploration) is a golden green because it is rich in olivine (aluminum, silica, magnesium and iron-a collection of volcanic crystals.) it is the nesting site of the Green Pacific Sea Turtle but sadly it wasn't nesting time and all we saw were the holes that previous turtles had dug.
We saw several of the Blue footed Boobies plunge like an arrow into the water to find some fish. They then sit on the water for a few moments before they take off again, fly around and head straight into the water! What a sight to see. Saw some flamingos but they were really too far away for good photos. There had been a population of 1500 but several years ago, they had so much rain that it changed the water and it no longer was as saline as it had been and the flamingos died. We also saw some more Blue footed Booby babies.
