Galapagos Island Adventure Part 2

There is a great variety of wildlife on and around the Galapagos Islands. We boated around the coastline in our small zodiac boats, walked along the shore and over rocky terrain, snorkeled, and hiked over a small mountain to see these wonderful creatures.  Here are photos of some of the wildlife we saw.
