Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

Wherever there is three, one is always BETWEEN, which is the theme for this week’s photo challenge from WordPress.  Here these three blue-footed boobies (Kongo calls this image Tres Amigos) perch on a rock in the Galapagos Islands.  The two on the ends look at the one between.  See more of Kongo’s Galapagos images here.

So, This Iguana Walks Into A Bar …

The land iguanas in the Galapagos are fierce looking but they won’t hurt you.  While their prehistoric appearance may startle you at first they tend to grow on you and pretty soon you’ll be saying “Iguana love you forever…” to your honey after an island outing.  Really.  And if that line doesn’t work you can always try (not recommended by the monkey) telling her that you do not suffer from “a reptile dysfunction.”  I know.  I know.  Read on for the bar joke.

Marine Iguanas

Found only on the Galapagos Islands, the marine iguana is a fierce-looking marine reptile but in fact these gentle creatures wouldn’t hurt a fly.  Their diet consists entirely of algae and seaweed.  Each island in the Galapagos has a slightly different species of lizard and their coloring changes depending upon which island you happen to visit.

Celebrity Xpedition Galapagos Cruise Review

Kongo just finished a week aboard the Celebrity Cruise ship Xpedition for a trip to the Galapagos.  This is a review of that trip and he’s writing it before the memories fade.  If the Galapagos is on your bucket list I hope you read the review.  Please feel free to ask any questions in the comment section.
