It is fascinating how each Galapagos island is different. South Plaza Island's shoreline is ringed with volcanic boulders and cliffs, with lava rocks, opuntia cacti and sesuvium, a low ground cover
that is red and orange when water is scarce.
A nazca booby -- white body, orange beak and eyes and a chocolatey brown tail and wing edge --
stood silently at a poop-covered promontory.
A blue-footed booby kept watch.
A young sea lion was curious.
A lava lizard posed, showing his best side.
And a swallow tail gull hid quietly behind a tree.
I am still away, for a few more days.
