Santiago

It was another rough night at sea. The Beagle cruised from Genovesa to Santiago during the night and left us all sleepless. After breakfast, we took the panga to shore for a hike round the island. The black sand and lava formations were dramatic. Pools and underwater caverns were mesmerizing. Lots of wildlife.

After lunch on the boat we retuned to the shores of Santiago for snorkeling. The water wasn't as clear as Genovesa, but a beautiful variety of fish provided great entertainment.

The captain raised the sails on the Beagle for the first time and we spent the afternoon cruising over to Isabela Island. Back in the Southern Hemisphere, we had a lazy day of sailing.
