The Devil's Crown near Floreana Island
This is where I learned to snorkel. I
really really love to snorkel. My guide went down and picked up a sea star for me and my
Daddy took a picture of it at Devil's Crown. We saw some penguins swimming around. I saw
lots of fish in the water and some of them were Angelfish. The water was really warm. When
it rained it was warmer in the water than out of it. I thought I saw an electric eel but
maybe it was an electric fish. Or maybe it wasn't electric at all.
|We saw some flamingos in the water and some of them
were flying. We got pretty close to them but far enough so they wouldn't fly away from us.
We watched them eating shrimp and that is why they are pink.

|My Daddy and I were playing pirates and we took over
the boat. I was the captain of the boat. The real Captain was a very nice man who let me
drive the boat. We saw dolphins jumping out of the waves in front of the boat. My Daddy
was yelling yahoo! I saw them looking up at me. The dolphins stayed with us until they
disappeared into the waves.
Notes - The Devil's Crown off the coast of Floreana is one of the best places in Galapagos
to snorkel. You can see green sea turtles, white-banded angelfish, Moorish idols, rainbow
wrasse, moray eels, white-tip reef sharks and penguins.
