We just heard from Ken McFarland that he secured a boat for a Galapagos trip in late February. We are going! Wow -- Tanzania last year and the Galapagos next year - this sure beats going to the zoo. Lucky we hadn't made plans to go to Guana Island yet as we had intended since this was one of our 2 out of 3 years so there is no conflict.
There'll be a bit of dancing and lots of fantastic nature.
