IE Art Director Charlie Boyd has spent the last four days on our Galapagos Islands tour  aboard the Evolution , and has cell service as he heads toward Santiago and Bartolomé. Charlie has checked in with a list of what his Galapagos travel group has spotted while exploring San Cristóbal, Española and Santa Cruz.
"We are having a great time! The food on the Evolution  is great. We've seen so much wildlife. A special treat yesterday was seeing albatross chicks and a bobolink (see right) - the guides had only seen a bobolink once before!
"Lonesome George  was out and about at the Darwin Research Station...we got a great view. Plus, there were lots of finches in the Highlands today."
Tuesday 5:45 p.m.: "We just went snorkeling and got to see sea lions in the water! Hiked Bartolomé with (guide) Alex. He seems to know everything!"
