Espanola Island

Jun 03, 2018 - National Geographic Endeavour II


Down in the southeast corner of the archipelago, one feels particularly isolated and alone. Winds and oceans currents come from the southeast – a thousand miles away…and go only one way – to the northwest. All here is unique within the uniqueness of the islands…One-of-a-kind species for only this little island. Mockingbird, finches, marine iguanas, giant tortoises, lava lizards. Our snorkeling experience was outstanding – sea lions dashing at us, twirling away while laughing…bubbles coming out of their nose being the giveaway that we were being made fun of. So good to live in the present.
