Galapagos Expedition | Day 10
Cloudy skies and our last day arrived at the same time. This morning, the consensus of moods on the Daphne was gloomy. Thoughts of spending the day stuffed into airplanes, dealing with airlines, and crowded airports, was less than appealing.
We boarded the panga, and waved farewell to the Daphne crew.
I really wanted to bring this guy home with us! We could continue to receive delicious treats each time we came home, clean sheets and towels folded into animal shapes each night. He was also just a lot of fun to be around.
Luis grabbed a lifejacket and hopped aboard the panga for our return. And he carried our bags for us. What a guy!
Adiós Luis! Adiós Charlie! We’ll miss you.
Our first delay came at the Baltra airport. We were bumped onto the next flight.
We arrived back in Quito at around 6pm, just as the sun was setting.
Several people in our group were feeling a bit under the weather. A bowl of warm quinoa soup in the hotel restaurant and an early night to bed helped immensely.
Another early morning wake up. 3am, cram into a taxi with all our luggage. And you’ve already heard the rest of the story here.
The only things that made the day tolerable were thoughts of a soft, large bed and this sweet little face waiting at home...
Thank you so much for coming along on our journey through the Galapagos.
I’m glad you’re here!
