Up early at 5.00 and a quick pack and wash, then out on to the Pangas for a quick sortie through the Mangrove swamp. Saw small black tipped shark, Pelicans, a couple of turtles, a couple of species of Herons, on the way back we witnessed a feeding frenzy of Blue footed Boobys. Over 100 diving into the water to catch fish only yards from the Pangas, even on 100 mm I was hard pressed to capture the scene. It was an amazing spectical.
Back on board for breakfast and then we disembarked at 8.30, caught the bus fro the short. Trip to the airport. Checked in and away at 11.30 for the direct 2 hour trip to Quito.
Back at Quito we went has a group evening meal at La Choza. This was an Ecuadorian restaurant. Looked great, but the service was odd, main courses arriving before starters, and the food was in the main not so good. Much of it tasting similar with no strong flavours. I don’t think I will go out of the was to eat the same food again. To bed early as up at 5.00 for more bird watching in the Andes mountains.
