Channel Islands National Park
None of the islands are named after any of the UK Channel Islands, but the largest is named after Santa Cruz of the Galapagos. A member of boat staff suggested this was because the islands were similar, so Caroline asked if there were lots of bars to drink at – they were surprised as there is nowhere on these islands to drink.
The main wildlife are two notoriously
animals; small foxes and large ravens. These two will steal any
even rucksacks, shoes and cameras and dump them in the sea.
This cute cub was sleeping against a tent all afternoon.
The blossom was beautiful as we walked the Potato Harbour trail.
This adult fox pottered about.
The boat journeys only provided common dolphin spottings, but they put on a show for us.
2 dolphins still followed the boat while trying to make more dolphins
