Water, Water Everywhere, From Galapagos To The Great Lakes

Puerto Ayora, Galapagos

Although I don’t often stray from the Great Lakes region I regularly receive emails promoting far off places.

The current Red Mangrove Galapagos Travel Blog Newsletter asks, “Have you seen the color of the water in Puerto Ayora?”

So I clicked and saw this comment with the photo (left): Wharf in Puerto Ayora (Is That Water For Real?)

The Galapagos photo shows a beautiful place, but it reminded me of the color that the waters often are at many spots around Michigan, from the Traverse area in the Lower Peninsula to Pictured Rocks on Lake Superior and Kitch-iti-kipi, the Big Spring at Palms Brook State Park not far from Manistique in the Upper Peninsula. I guess I’ve thought to myself—and have heard others ask a similar question when gazing at our bounty of fresh H2O: Is that water for real?

I’m not being provincial. I was fortunate to have experienced the Galapagos many years ago, and it is a world apart.

I would love to return so I entered to win a trip from Red Mangrove Galapagos & Ecuador Lodges.

You can enter, too. You have to get yourself to Ecuador, and there are some restrictions; click here to learn about it and enter to win: Red Mangrove Galapagos Adventure

In the meantime, you can see waters that color—and many more shades of blue and aqua—all around the Great Lakes State.
