Blue-footed boobies and giant tortoises in the Galapagos Islands

Wednesday was a day off for the Mont Pelerin Society, so we took excursions to see the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands. We saw the famous giant tortoises and the mockingbirds whose variation inspired Charles Darwin (rather than the finches). Then some of us took a boat ride to see the blue-footed boobies for which the islands are noted, plus the frigate birds and pelicans. Obliging turtles swam up to our boat, as did playful young sea-lions. We did spot marine iguanas on the shore. It was quite a wildlife-packed day!
