To tell of the Galapagos is to tell a story in  pictures--for it is the visual--not the narrative--that becomes the sharing. This is the story.

The jungles and savannahs of Africa, the Rain Forests of South America and the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador speak in purity
of God's miracle of creation.  Where man has not been or at least not yet "civilized", we find nature as it is meant to be--animals and
marine life living and interacting in natural ways, plants and foliage growing unchecked and regenerating by the laws of their species.
And--no where is this more true than on the Islas Galapagos where man has not taught fear--where guns and knives have not
butchered--where life is as it has been since the beginning.  Here man can tred softly and watch the tender hatching of a blue-footed boobie,
marvel at the chest puffing of the vain and macho male frigate, stay clear of the enraged bull sea lion protecting his family, swim with sea
turtles and exquisitly rainbowed fish and, become mesmorized by the stoic colonies of marine iquanas--beautiful, they're not!
