Galapagos Multi Sport
Now on to San Cristobal. The rough seas continued and everyone but the crew, fabricio and 16 year old Drake was feeling sick (my advice, take lots of Dramamine). We arrived at the dock at Puerto Bazquiero Moreno and walked the short distance to our hotel, Hotel Teclas. We took over the whole place. I had a beautiful room on the third floor, with HUGE sliding glass doors facing the bay and a window in back facing the town. Luckily everyone recovered in time to eat a huge lunch. Our intinerary had planned kayaking for after lunch but Fabricio tought we'd all had enough of the ocean for the day so we hiked to the top of Frigate Bird Hill instead. We saw lava lizards, Blue Footed Boobies dive bombing into the sea and of course Frigate Birds. The weather changed from cloudy and drizzley to sunny and hot and back again. We stopped at Darwin Bay and watched some sea lions playing, only Fabricio braved the cold water to snorkel. The rest of us watched the playing sea lions, floating frigate birds and sally lightfoot crabs. That night dinner was on our own. I walked through the town, found a Pharmacy, bought Dramamine and found an internet cafe to let everyone at home know I was still alive. There are sea lion colonies on the beach right in town. Also sea lions lounge on the beach right outside Hotel Teclas. I slept very well that night.
