Crossing the Equator
08 April 2012 | The Galapagos Archipelago
This afternoon marked our 4th crossing of the equator and we had a great time sharing the celebration with Inspiration at Sea as we motored along side by side over smooth seas with a light cooling breeze. We donned costumes and toasted King Neptune and tossed our "message in a bottle" bottles over the side. These bottles were put together for us by our friends on Dock 3 in Marina Palmira at our going away party and they are filled with boat cards from all our friends from the Sea of Cortez.
Now we are motoring our final approach to our first anchorage in the Galapagos, San Cristobal, where we will clear customs and then on Wednesday our friend Joni joins us for a two week vacation! She's as excited as we are to go explore the wonderful wildlife where you can see penguins and Flamingos at the same time.
I can't believe we're really in the Galapagos!
