We're Home!

(Fishers, IN)- After 30 days, we're back home, safe and sound. After two days of nearly solid travel -4 planes, three time zones, and all the airport food anyone can handle- we're glad to be back.

Isabel wiggles in one of AeroGal's 737s on Monday's flight out of San Cristobal.

Like the trip, the blog is chronologically at an end, but the posts are not nearly complete. We took over 2,000 pictures in Ecuador and on the Galapagos Islands- not that they are all worth posting, but there are many stories yet to share along with the pictures. I'll post an update announcement at the top of the blog each time I add something.

See you soon!

(San Cristobal, Galapagos)- Ecuador is a place where you can get ice cream- helado- anywhere, anytime. This is especially true on the Galapagos Islands, where the temperatures always make it a good time to eat ice cream. Certainly, Isabel would agree.

Isabel eats and wears her ice cream. She was beginning to learn that you have to eat ice cream a bit more quickly on the Equator than you do in, say, Fishers. Ame and Isabel on Avenida Charles Darwin, next to the Ocean.

New Posts

(Isla San Cristobal, Galapagos)- I've had the chance to fill in a few more blanks with new posts with pictures. Be sure to check the entire blog, as the posts are filed chronologically as they happened.

We have less than three days left here on the Galapagos Islands, and we're hoping for one more good snorkelling outing. It's dependent upon the weather. After three days of amazing clear waters, there was a swell from a distant storm. It made the surfers happy, creating waves up to 9-10 feet high, but it has meant cloudy water, churning with sand, making for poor visibility and sometimes difficult swimming. The swell has been petering out over the past few days, so tomorrow might be the day.
