    The Galapagos Islands are also known for its spectacular volcanic formations, colourful sand beaches, such as Rabida's red beach and Floreana's green beach, and crystal-clear blue waters teaming with unusual marine life. Many trips are offered where you may get aboard a Galapagos cruise and explore different portions of each island, which is one of the reasons to visit the archipelagos. Naturalist guides who are educated about the area and can share their perspective on each region visited throughout the tour make up a large part of the staff. https://www.tiptopcruises.com/2021/07/special-deals-last-minute-sales-for-galapagos-tours/

    comments about my weight. Fox News in the background a lot of the time. An argumentative stepfather to deal with. We feel like we can't really relax because we are "a guest" in their home, so we have to limit the kids mess and rowdy play. I get it -- it's their house their rules. But it's not relaxing. And it's kind of toxic. But it's also free. We are in a position this year to rent our own more modest house for a week near theirs. Where we could relax a bit more but still see them. But I'm afraid they're going to flip out. Should I just do it?

    the lobby. Recently, a woman I previously chatted with has been less friendly. She still says hello but no longer stops to chat even when I try to engage her in conversation. Today, I stopped her at the mailboxes and asked her if I'd offended her. She seemed surprised and asked why I would ask that. I told her that she had seemed very cold towards me recently. At that point she said that "we are not good friends" and "I said hello to you is that not enough?" I feel so offended. How unneighborly!
