|The M/Y Eric — One of the three ships owned by Ecoventura, and our home for the next seven days, waiting for us in the harbor of Isla Santa Cruz as our plane arrives.|
|The Cast — The passengers for our week's cruise: in addition to me and Erin, there are five men, and seven women, pretty much all of them named Barbara. (Not pictured here: Barbara, taking the photo.)|
|Our Leaders — To the left, our guides Renato and Javier, and to the front, our very young Ecuadorian captain, raising a glass to all of us.|
|Our Man Hugo — Every time we returned from going ashore, there was our favorite crew member of all: Hugo, the bartender/waiter. There wasn't a mouth among us that didn't water up like one of Pavlov's dogs in anticipation for his snacks.|
|Cliff-side Soccer — The crew of our boat challenges the members of another ship in James Bay to a riveting soccer game on the edge of a cliff. (I'd hate to be the one to have to chase after an out-of-bounds kick on this field.)|
