Floreana top 3:
- La Loberia - “the sea lion beach” - snorkelling over rocks where sea turtles grazed and sea lion families frolicked.
- “Bolones” - fist-sized balls of mashed plantain (green banana) with cheese, with coffee for breakfast. Kept us going for hours.
- The saga of Rupe’s lost sandal: it floated away on the high tide as we snorkelled, and after a long search we were resigned to its loss…… as Rupe trudged back over the sharp volcanic rocks, I went back for a last look and there it was, tossing on the waves around the point. Retrieved after a quick swim and a run to reunite Rupe with his beloved right sandal.
Other moments: the Iguana trail with the coloured marine iguanas, and the sea lions suckling their cubs on the ferry landing as we waited to board.
