This afternoon we take a road trip . It's a full afternnon . We travel to a farm and see wild giant tortoises roaming free . It's incrediable watching these huge creatures moving about and grazing on the grass.

We wind our way through the highlands to see the huge craters called Los Gemelos . Around this area the bird watcher group among us get o excited to see the bright red Vermillion Flycatcher. He is quite amazing and stayed obiently for the hundred or so pictures we took!!

We arrive back is in Puerto Ayora where we have a chance to buy some T shirts and a snack . There are a few little restuarants and its like being back in civilization ..
