Daisy Update:

Daisy is now three days into her leg to the Marquesas. Most of the fleet are in front, as once again Daisy was one of the last to leave, (awaiting crew members returning) however, there are four boats behind her so she isn’t totally last. You can see her progress on the yellow brick tracker. […]

Oh So Sick…

I haven’t posted anything since my last post because there wasn’t much to write about that anyone would want to read. Our plan had been upon leaving the Fragata, to sail to Isabela for a couple of days and do some sight-seeing and exploration, unfortunately with Bob not being well we had to cancel that […]

Fragata, Day four.

Friday March 15th The bell was very early this morning we were going out at dawn to catch the wildlife, and then returning for breakfast later. Unfortunately both Bob and I were both suffering from horrible stomach upsets. I was doing much better than Bob, but we still went, we had a boat to ourselves […]

Fragata, Day Three.

Thursday March 14th The bell rang at 6:50 again to announce breakfast. I’ve only had two breakfasts on board Fragata so far, but it’s been enough to know not to get excited about it. This morning was sadly no different; we had cold fried eggs, and luke warm bread! I’m actually beginning to get a […]

Fragata, Day Two.

The Tree House

Thursday March 7th Our day started with the arrival of Noddy who had apparently forgotten our paperwork! I’m not quite sure why he came all the way out to tell us that he didn’t have what he should have brought with him! He said he would be back a bit later, but if past performance […]

Fragata Cruise Day One

Tuesday March 12th Today we start our cruise of the islands, on the motor yacht ‘Fragata’. It had been arranged that the crew would collect us from Daisy at 7:45 this morning. Following quite a late night of frantically packing and getting the boat ready for while we’re away, we were all a little tired. […]

Swimming With The Penguins

Monday March 11th We had a day tour today to the islands of Bartolome and Santiago, where we were promised sightings of the Galapagos penguin. It had been arranged that we would meet the bus at 6am on shore. However, having had such a fun day and night yesterday we were running a little late […]
