Another day in paradise …

A couple more days of cruising around the Adriatic. We visited Korkula – gorgeous walled city and then sailed into a small bay for the evening.

This morning we started the trek back to Dubrovnik … an early start

Captain P in charge!

… and here we are moored for the evening – beers on the boat!


Sailing in Croatia – on the move again!

Well … I totally failed to complete my Galapagos blog – lack of internet at the time and then busy catching up at home. Hopeless! Still … we’re off again, and this time Chris and I are

sailing from Dubrovnik up the coast. Very relaxed cruising in fine weather and light winds – all good practice for my very rusty yachtmaster skills!

We sail overnight to our next destination – the magical Espanola – land of sea lions

A spot of dinner?

Off line and truly in the wild, these islands are truly magical. Our first expedition from the Seaman (our home for 4 days) to San Cristobal.

Arriving on the first beach … intrepid explorers!

Here’s what we saw … many mocking birds

Our first mega land tortoise

A baby tortoise in our path – whose home is this anyway?

Onto Quito …

A very Latin city – lively, colourful with fascinating heritage, stunning views and great architecture. The city is surrounded by snow capped volcanoes and green, green mountains

Madonna overlooks the city

Local traders …

Many churches

So fabulous, I need to do a second post … the lodge in the middle of the jungle

Amazing birds including these stinky turkeys

More monkeys

For posterity
