We are currently on Panama’s west coast, having enjoyed some unexpected delights — swimming with modular rays and whale shark, and watching humpback swim through our anchorage. The birdlife isn’t to be missed either, with flocks that swarm in large groups flying past in regular interval.
We are currently hauled out with some preparation before the Pacific crossing. We will detour north to Costa Rica from Panama before heading west to maximise our time in Central America. Beautiful palm-fringed white sand islets lay ahead of us, so for now we look forward to dense jungle and the diversity of life that it holds.
We just need to weld a small hole in our hull and we’re off….. a fortunate discovery before having to stick our fingers in to seal it. The joys of owning a steel boat!
