The Beagle cruised down the western coast of Isabela and anchored in Urbina Bay. We took the panga for a wet landing on the beach in search of land iguana and turtles. It was probably the hottest day of the week and the animals were hard to find.
Yellow jacket bees and wasps were everywhere. It was hard for me to keep it together when a swarm was nearby. I got stung on my baby finger and it hurt like hell. I had no interest in the hunt for creatures among the distracting bees.
After a quick swim, with turtle and penguin sightings, we were back on the Beagle and enjoyed fruity cocktails, wine, dinner and lots of laughs while cruising to Elizabeth Bay.
