Sun Shines Everywhere 16161

Alameda residents Steve and June Simmons traveled to the Galapagos Islands recently and brought their own Sun to the equator. The Galápagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. A province of Ecuador, it lies about 1,000km off its coast. It's considered one of the world's foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, including giant tortoises, many found nowhere else.
