In 1835, naturalist Charles Darwin got his first glimpse of the Galapagos archipelago during his visit to San Cristobal Island. This morning, we visited Punta Pitt, the easternmost point of the island. The huge, eroded tuff cone is home to all species of boobies found in the Galapagos, a sea lion colony, the endemic San Cristobal mockingbirds, and San Cristobal lava lizards. We spent the afternoon on one of the most beautiful beaches of the archipelago, Cerro Brujo. An easy stroll along this white sandy beach was the perfect ending of an amazing expedition on board National Geographic Islander II.
