Floreana

We land on a dark greenish beach (wild how different the beaches are on each island) on Floreana and find a great surprise: flamingos. We watch them do some fancy mating love dance in a line (again, showing off for the ladies - theme here?) Our guide tells us how lucky we are to see this dance, as they only do it every few years! We try it out but our legs don't bend the right way! We say bye to the flamingos, and after a hike through somewhat dusty unimpressive trail, we top a rise and there is a beautiful white beach below us. Not only pretty, this beach has mating sea turtles thrashing around in the surf. Our daughters are mortified, but we find it very educational!

On another side of Floreana, we find the post office, a wooden barrel to place letters in, and established by the sailors in the 1700's. We had a great time sorting through mail and took several to mail once we got back home. We left a few postcards of our own, and hope that someone will choose them to mail.
