Gainesville couple takes "bucket list" trip to Galapagos Islands
Bob and Reesa Hawkins explore remote archipelago and its wildlife
Bob and Reesa Dawkins pose for a photo on the shore before boarding a zodiac boat to the National Geographic ship Endeavor. A sleeping sea lion lies on the sand a few feet behind them, completely undisturbed by their presence.

As a retired flight attendant, the 59-year-old woman has visited five of the seven continents. She still has Australia and Antarctica left.
