Today was our first full day in the Galapagos Islands, and we started the day on North Seymour, an uplifted, bird magnet island. This island is home to great and magnificent frigatebirds, swallow-tailed gulls, blue-footed boobies, and Galapagos yellow land iguanas. As we walked along the trail, we encountered these species and many curious and beautiful sea lion pups as well. In the afternoon, we continued the expedition on a famous red island known as Rabida, where we took the adventure into the water with our first snorkeling outing. The day ended with a sunset walk to observe flamingos nesting and sea lions coming to the shore to rest. It was a magical day on the Enchanted Islands, and this is just the beginning!
