Wow - what an incredible day!  We went swimming wtih playful little sea lion pups today!  It was so amazing!  There were about 10 of them that came to play with us.  They would swimming right at our faces us as if they were going to run into us and then at the last minute they would change course and duck below us.  Our guide Jorge swam underwater in a frenzie of flips and spins which got them even more excited to play!  Seeing their big brown sea lion eyes underwater as they flipped and dove was such an incredible experience!  We were all left exhausted and exhilerated - wow!

The islands themselves are so weird.  At Santa Fe today, we felt like we were walking through a Dr Seuss book.  There were these weird little round cacti everywhere and the ground was covered in red, orange and yellow bumps and lumps! There were iguanas all over the place .  We climbed to the top of a cliff and had a beautiful view down over the water.  Such a good place to be.  We are lucky kids!
