Missed You! Wish You Were There!

Jet black lava glistening as hovering bright red and blue crabs 
scatter out of the way. 

Our first dry landing a success, we are soon distracted by the approaching iguanas. Unlike the brilliant crabs, they become one with the rock. Blink once, twice to focus and they are everywhere!

It's a beautiful evening in the Galapagos as we are guided through a grove of Incense Trees. Now barren, but a promise that they will flourish with green when the rain returns. Stillness except for rustling in the brush. Stop. Quietly wait...

A golden 4 foot Land Iguana emerges. He carries on and so do we...

To the top of Dragon Hill, we look out at the unique and otherworldly atmosphere. Am I really here? I remind myself, "be in the moment" as we casually walk back to where the white sand and black rock engage. The sun is setting, but we don't feel rushed or hurried. Our yacht is patiently waiting, an ebony silhouette against the pink sky...and this is only day one...
