Location: Puerto Ayora, Galapagos

Today the crew of Argo awoke early to a breakfast of cereal and oatmeal. After breakfast, we raised anchor and headed for Puerto Ayora 40 miles away. During the passage, the crew learned to splice lines, some worked on their marine biology projects, and others just enjoyed the sights. Also, during our sail, the few shipmates who choose to sacrifice their hair to King Neptune at the equator learned they needed sunscreen on their scalps. Once anchored, the crew prepared for dinner and swam in the Pacific. Our schedule has been confirmed for Santa Cruz. The crew is excited for 100-year-old tortoises, hammerhead sharks, penguins, blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, and all the other treasures of the Galapagos.
