A little art every day seems to go a long long way.
Draw some lines here fast and free,
a splash of color and it's a memory.

I wish everyone could make this trip. It was fantastic, amazing and a trip of a lifetime. These are just a few of the sea lions on Espanola Island.
Marine iguanas, albatross, and blue footed boobie. The post office barrel has been in place since the early 1700's. Now it is leave a letter and take one that you can hand delivery in your area or to a place you are going to.
The giant tortoises are amazing, 400 lbs. and some are over 100 years old. There is a great program in effect that is raising the populations on the different islands. Visited the Darwin Center.
I was fascinated with the land iguanas. There are different kinds, all beautiful in their own way and great posers for some sketches. Sea lions sleeping under a cactus, what can I say?
One more iguana, sea lion and a red footed boobie. The emblem is for the National Park Marina Reserve. They say you can leave the islands but the islands never leave you. A wonderful memory forever.
