(Day 7 afternoon. San Cristobal, GALAPAGOS!) Alas our last full day! And it’s the afternoon already on San Cristobal. 🙁
When people are less relevant, you really see how animals act. There’s nothing to fear from humans, so as example…
Here’s a frame from a GoPro video just before a young, curious sea lion poked my video cam, physically that is, while I sat in a tide pool last week.
All the animals, be it iguanas, boobies, sea turtles, tortoises or dolphins, simply “got on with their business,” walking thru our legs if needed to carry on.
I found it enthralling, thought provoking and deeply inspiring, yet often was wistful to be in the middle of a tiny slice of what “Mother Earth” was like at one time, but won’t be again for a long time, [ and what remains is potentially passing away too ] due to us.
If you can, visit these nooks and crannies of our planet. You will be happy you did.
