Chino gave us a lift, a very short ride to Isla Lobos. As the name suggests it wasn’t a surprise to see a nursing mother, who immediately smiled for the clicking cameras.
The noise of the outboard brought in some youngsters who put on a bit of a show.
After running the gauntlet of the soundo masses we saw Great Frigatebirds doing their stuff.
Instead of the ‘doof, doof, doof’ noise of the Magnificent Frigatebirds moving their gular sacs (that we heard on Barbuda), these chaps make noises like turkeys and waggle their wonderful red appendage in a flirting fashion. We saw others flying with a deflated sac.
Some boys were gathering twigs, others were preening to look their best and some of the girls were completely disinterested.
We followed the path and soon came upon a lovely lad with smashing blue feet who didn’t mind a chat.
What a lovely face.
At the end of the path we found ourselves on the beach. Kicker Rock away in the distance.
Daniel, our temporary whisperer engages a lava lizard.
A chap enjoys the sun.
A chap in the shade and one sunbathing.
Along the beach and along another path, passing a Galapagos Cotton Flower.
How cute is the baby.
I know, more Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
As we wait for Chino to pick us up this chap gives us one look and promptly flops across the path.
ALL IN ALL IT JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER
