We took Matt down to Dolphin Bay and anchored in a lagoon about 10 miles away from Bocas Town. We went on a dinghy ride around the lagoon, skirting the edges of the dripping rainforest and the mangrove islands through which local fishermen paddled dugout canoes, and saw a ray do a double axel right out of the water.
After eating a nice meal of green chili cheeseburgers, we spent the evening listening to howler monkeys and watching a distant lightning storm brighten the horizon, and once the monkeys went to sleep, it was completely quiet and completely still. Until, of course, Vlad jumped into the water.
True to its name, Dolphin Bay actually had about 20 dolphins swimming and leaping and playing in the water. Panama is really putting on a show for Matt.
