Scenes from Isabela Island
Isabela Island is my favorite of the islands we visited while in the Galapagos. The sand on the beach was the texture of baby powder, and the water was warm. The tide pool at the beach just outside the hotel had damsel fish and small puffer fish in it.
We stayed at Casa de Marita which was a great place right on the beach.
While on Isabela we also took taxis to the highlands to see several volcanos. Danielle, (the woman on the left in this photo) and I were in the back of a taxi that had room for a couple of more people so we were joined by these two guys. I think the older guy in the middle said his name was Calvin. They seemed a bit odd, and both Danielle and I were relieved when they took a different taxi back at the end of the day.
