Galapagos Islands cruise - travel photos

My husband and I are just back from the Galapagos Islands on a National Geographic cruise. Here are some photos of our adventures. Loved the critters! It was wonderful that they were not afraid of us at all and we could wander/swim/snorkel/kayak amongst them easily and safely. It was utopian!
