Tis the Season

Those are some good lookin' storm clouds.

For rain. Our tropical paradise has been inundated lately with, well, water. The rainy season is upon us, which means that there will be a lot of wet, hopefully not mildewy, days ahead. In fact, the rainy season  doesn't end until the fall. Never fear, though, your intrepid travelers will not look like wet rats constantly. The clouds generally build up into late afternoon showers or rainstorms, leaving the rest of the day high, dry and seriously humid (naturally, as I type this at 8:30 a.m., it starts pouring rain).

Of course along with the summer rainy season, there is also hurricane and tropical storm potential, two weather phenomena that we are eager to avoid, and as such we are going to continue heading south out of the 'cane zone with a couple of stop offs in Mexico and possibly Honduras. Here's to sailing in the rain!  


  1. May the wind be at you back and smooth sailing.

  2. Think about avoiding Honduras (at least the main land for sure) need to stop, Providencia,we didn't but should have, everyone who goes there loves it.

  3. Sherah, thank you kindly! I also wanted to let you know that I accidentally deleted one of your comments the other day. Blogger is in Spanish down here, and I can't figure out how to make it go back to English because, well, it's all in Spanish. Anyway, I'm really sorry about the deletion.

    Dave and Jennie, thanks for all the good advice. I think we're going to stop by the Bay Islands, and we might spend the night in Providencia. We'd like to spend more time there, but I've heard that it's an expensive place to check in. Can't wait to see you guys down in Panama!

  4. Yay...goodluck as you travel south..hoping you miss the hurricanes..Weather systems that is.
