island n. seymore, island martolome
sharks have also always been a fascination and as i was about to exit the water (after everyone else had) i found myself in only a few feet of water surrounded buy 5 or 6 baby galapagos sharks. wow! i rose above to let the others in the boat know what i had found and they could see them in the water around me as i quickly plunged back in to watch the majestic and spooky creatures. thank goodness their mother wasn't around though... i wasn't ready to encounter a full grown shark like that!
yes, the water was the main attraction today but one can not leave out the blue footed boobies with their robin's egg blue feet and humorous character. this is what we came to galapagos to see and what people go home talking about and carrying souvenirs of and their show didn't disappoint.
