Humpback whales swam between the moored yachts on several occasions. Unfortunately they didn't come right next us as they did with Troutbridge and Calypso. These pictures were taken by Freya on Troutbridge and we were next to them on the other side. So we could see it all, but couldn't get a good picture.
Maureen on Calypso watching as the 2 whales surface between the boats.
We didn't see Red-footed boobies in the Galapagos, but the following show a 'tame' one at Palmerston that came ashore to be fed.
