I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Punta Suarez

The afternoon expedition, to Punta Suarez, was a very different environment from the morning's beach. Here you could really appreciate that Espanola is the oldest of the islands, with lava worn to smooth boulders. I took the allegedly "easy" hike over the rocks to the beach; we all had walking sticks and had to step from boulder to boulder, avoiding the iguanas who acted as though they owned the place and showed no interest in getting out of anyone's way.

But it was so worth it. There were hundreds of iguanas basking on the rocks and a nursery of sea lion pups playing in the water. And more of the huge Espanola mockingbirds.
