Galapagos Islands

May 12-20, 2014

In May of 2014 Pat and I were joined by Pat's cousin, Marian and her husband, Fred, for a long awaited trip to the Galapagos Islands, off the coast of Ecuador, South America. We first flew to the capital city of Quito, where we spent 2 nights. While there we did some touring, which included a visit to the equator and the old city of Quito. We then flew to the Galapagos where we boarded the yacht MV Santa Cruz. The ship had 82 guests for the 6 day voyage. We visited the 5 western islands where we saw numerous unique animals and snorkled on the coral reefs on 2 occasions. On the final day we flew back to Quito and spent the night at a beautiful hotel before our flight home.
