We arrived, after a fairly rough night, at Puerto Egas on Santiago. At one time there were salt mines here and there had been an attempt to create a village. The landing this morning was wet. We changed into walking shoes and took a shore walk. There were many birds, including whimbrels, ruddy turnstones, American oystercatchers, a wandering tatler, plovers, yellow warblers, a Galapagos dove, a Galapagos Hawk and the usual unidentified Darwin Finches. There were also great blue, striated (or lava) and Galapagos herons. Out at sea there were Blue-footed Boobies and pelicancs diving and, at one point, a couple of dolphins swam by. Towards the turning point we went on some lava shelfs where there were Galapagos fur seals resting.
