We saw a masked booby. It was a green-footed booby and
green-footed boobies are masked boobies. There are blue-footed boobies and red-footed
There was a blow hole that spurted up water and sprayed
us. I saw some marine iguanas cooling off near the booby. Marine iguanas swim and go on

I built a sand volcano and it was white and it looked
like Cotopaxi. A sea lion rolled over and touched me on the ankle when I was on the beach.
They were all females with young ones. My Daddy used to lie on the beach with the sea
lions. They're his friends, too.
|School Notes - The southeast side of Hood Island is a
rugged coast line with steep cliffs. They have been eroded by waves pushed ashore by the
strong southeast tradewinds. The waved albatros use the cliffs and strong winds for
take-off. On the north side of Hood island are beautiful white sand beaches like the one
at Gardner Bay.
