I am a little slow getting the last few pages done, but I will have one for each day of the month so please return to see the end.
Mickey - Thanks. We have to get back to Acadia. I feel a road trip in our future.lol
Debby - Thanks. Glad to take you along.
Margo - Thank you. I will finish.
Jacqui - Glad to bring you with me. Thanks.
I was thinking of the Galapagos Islands and the magic feather has brought me here. These islands lie 650 miles off the coast of Equador, right on the equator.
Because of its fragile ecosystem this is a protected site. All visitors must be accompanied by a licensed naturalist guide. We are going closer by raft.
The islands don't have much vegetation. At first they look almost desolate, but there are all kinds of wildlife. Look there is an iguauan on top of that rock!
There are over 50 islands and they are volcanic in origin. Much of the rock that makes up the islands is black lava.
The wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is very diverse. There are tiny penguins, flightless cormorants, red-billed tropical birds, sea lions, pink flamingos and these fabulous giant tortoises.
I hope I can see a few more creatures before the magic feather and I return home.
