It is 08:00 in the morning, the boat is anchored between two islands, Santa Cruz and Baltra. Tourists and their guide are ready for a last expedition in the Galapagos Islands.
This morning we have a wet landing on white coralline sand, I collect the lifejackets and we all get ashore without shoes.
We are on Mosquera Island, a small piece of lava covered with sand only and provides shelter to a sea lion colony, a few marine iguanas and sometimes shore birds.
As customary as a guide we have to give the group all the instructions concerning this last visit, this good bye to Galapagos.
While walking along the islet and admiring the sunrays hitting the rocks, breathing the morning air feels blessed for being there, Galapagos is magic.
Everybody always asks, what made you choose to be a guide, you have a marvelous job and I agree. Galapagos guides have a big responsibility; to deliver the nature of the islands to all visitors.
