mas galapagos photos

This morning at 6am Mark woke me up to see little 1-2 foot reef sharks who were busy fishing for their breakfast right off of the stern of Scholarship. Groups of 5 or 6 cruised around along with a little school of manta rays. So much to see without even leaving home. We are heading off to Isla Isabella in the manana. Our last island will hopefully allow us to see even more wildlife. In the meantime we are getting ready for the big passage to the Marquessas. There are a lot of other cruisers here that will also be getting underway in the next few weeks. We all spend a lot of time speculating about the wind and how many days it will take to go almost 3000 miles.

Hey there Mark and Liz: Got your postcard. Sorry we didn't get out to visit you before you set off for the long haul. Maybe we can meet up in a more exotic location. We have been really busy with renovations on the Arizona and Washington houses. Hopefully you will be able to come visit and see them. Bon Voyage on your sail to the Marquessas.

XXOO Becky and Chris
