After our usual wake-up and brekky (the bell sounds, and we all obey and arrive to breakfast... Pavlov would have been proud!) we travelled by dingy to the seashell-pink sands of Rabida Island. Here we saw a pelican nesting area on the beach, and then we set off on the short path across the island, gazing at the sea birds whirling overhead. Some nice views of the island.

A few more hours of sailing after lunch brought us to our second stop for the day, Bartolome Island, which at its highest point (114m) has one of the most photographed vistas in the archipelago. This island is quite young and quite volcanic. Hence it is relatively unpopulated; only a small handful of die-hard plants and animal species have survived long enough to call this otherworldly lava-land home.
