While we were at the Charles Darwin Research Center, part of our group had to leave. Their tour is now over and later this afternoon, new people will join us on the boat for the remainder of our stay. Since Michelle and I did not have to go, we took the opportunity to spend more time at the CDRC and take several hundred more photos and videos of the Galapagos Giant Tortoises. We also took a look at the land iguanas, but they were lying there motionless, and we weren't allowed to get that close to them.
Next was some free time in the town of Puerto Ayora. This means shopping, of course! We stopped in to a few shops on our way back to the port and picked a few souvenirs, including Bobby the Booby, a small wooden blue-footed booby who stands on one foot. Before going back to the boat, we pickled up a few things at the small grocery store by the port.
