Bartolomé Island

Bartolome Island.

Coming ashore: While visiting the Galápagos archipelago, we lived on a cruise ship* and came ashore twice a day via zodiacs (also known as 'pangas'). The cruise ship never docked on the islands.

Here a lava heron greets a load of visitors.

* Our cruise ship was the Celebrity Xpedition. I'm happy to report that the staff, food and facilities were all superb.
