neat encounters with Marine Iguanas & Lava Lizards. Everyday, we go for a walk to some nearby cove or beach. One day snorkeling, another day, swimming. Just looking around at all the birds and critters. Fletcher has surfed once at Canons, and today we will try Tonga Reef. This island is famous for its surfing, so he is very excited to be here.
The town here is very clean and newly renovated for the influx of tourism. Right now, we are on the edge of high season, so there aren't too many people and we are able to still work some deals on tours. Food here is less expensive than we had expected. Yesterday, we went to the mercado and got two full bags of fruits and vegetables for $10.00 . Lunch, (Almeurzo)which includes soup, fresh juice, the days selection of meat, salad and rice is $2.50. Last night, we went out for dinner and had a
shrimp plate for $4.00, and a lobster plate for $6.00. Of course there are the more expensive tourist oriented restaurants, but we try to stay away from these. On Wednesday, we are planning on sailing overnight with our guests to another island called Isabella which is even less touristy and has more critters. There we hope to see some penguins and flamingos.
