We were planning on going through the Panama Canal at the beginning of December and had enlisted some of our favorite people to help us make the transit. But after much consideration and talking to our Panama Canal posse, we’ve decided to wait a couple more months. Why? Because we’re loving the chilled out life in the San Blas.
It’s just a magical, easy place to be. We can swim or fish or wander around islands every day. Doing laundry up the Rio Diablo has become one of our favorite outings (we see crocodiles every time). Filling up our water tank is as easy as putting a couple of five-gallon water cans under the funnels we have set up on the bimini, and the San Blas is a cruising budget godsend. We’ve even made a few good friends down here, both Kuna and cruiser, who we’d like to spend some more time with.
So it looks like our brothers will just have to suffer through hanging out in the San Blas Islands for a week instead of the canal. Sorry, fellas. I know life is tough, but somehow we will manage to have a good time. Somehow.
