Amazing views on South Plaza Island, Galapagos

For us was this one of the most amazing walks on the Galapagos. On our way, we went through a landscape of grey shiny rocks enriched by large cactus trees. We saw several animals never seen before: a special gull, yellow finches and a fabulous yellow grey land iguana.

The views from the top of South Plaza Island cliffs are amazing. The sea water is blue and white from the breaking waves. Looking down, we see a Blue Footed Boobie, time to screw up the tele-lens. Before leaving we ask a friend to take our picture, a memory we will keep forever.

Voor ons was dit één van de meest memorabele wandelingen op de Galapagos eilanden. Onderweg South Plaza Island gingen we door een grijs schijnend rotslandschap verrijkt met grote cactusbomen. We zagen er vele voor ons nieuwe diersoorten zoals unieke meeuwen, gele vinken en een ongelooflijke landhagedis. 

De zichten van op de rotsen waren verbluffend. Het zeewater was blauw en wit omwille van de brekende golven. Onder ons zagen we een Blue Footed Boobie, tijd om de telelens op te schroeven. Net voor het verlaten van het eiland vragen we een vriend nog een foto van ons twee te nemen, een herinnering voor het leven.
