Sapphire II of London - Arrival at Galapagos
We safely arrived at the Galapagos and anchored in the dark. The last 24 hours have been amazing - boobies fighting for a space to sit at our bow, Manta rays in the water and a pod of pilot whales in the water right next to the boat. This morning we woke to sea lions on our neighbour's boat (we have defended our stern with fenders to prevent a similar invasion as they are particularly smelly) and a school of 3 whales which swam under the boat and Charlie was convinced were orcas. We've successfully passed a rigorous inspection by 8 inspectors and are now off to terra firma.
