After nine days in the Pacific, with wind and current in our favor to help push us along and a pit stop at the Equator for an afternoon of equatorial festivities, we have made it safe and sound to Isla San Cristobal in the Galapagos. We are both a bit tired, and we have some sleep to catch up on, but we have already scheduled an island tour for Wednesday and are looking into four-to-five-day tours where we hope to get the whole Darwin experience. Even here, right where we're anchored in the ominously named Wreck Bay, we have huge turtles and inquisitive seals swimming around us. It's already worth every sleep-deprived moment of the sail here.
