|This morning the sea was much calmer. Phew. We had a wake up call at 7 again and a lovely breakfast, then a wet landing at Darwin Bay. We saw lots of red footed boobies - which are the only webbed feet birds to live in trees, and lots of frigate birds too. We also discovered that some of the red footed boobies are white!|
Snorkelling was nice and calm and we saw lots of beautiful parrot fish and big hog fish. The conditions were really nice.
We had an enormous Ecuadorian lunch with loads of traditional food including a suckling pig that was wearing sunglasses! It was really nice, especially the cookies which were a kind of shortbread sandwiched together with caramel. Mmmm.
