Hola otra vez Boatbloggers®.
Columbia was fantastic. There were rivers to swim in…
Coffee to drink,
and some pretty serious spiders.
But it’s not all fun and games. We had a few repairs to sort out from our crossing from Grenada which was pretty rough.
Unfortunately, on our last day we were a bit ill, and couldn’t leave the heads*, let alone the marina. So we were a day late starting the next leg.
*that’s toilets for you landlubbers.
And while we were sorry to be leaving Columbia…
we were excited about our next stop – The San Blas Islands.
These are a group of nearly 400 islands, just off the Panama coast. If you imagine a typical tropical island, with turquoise waters and silver sands and palm trees, that is the San Blas.
They are mostly uninhabited, but a few are home to the Kuna Indians,
who live pretty much as they have done for centuries, fishing and harvesting coconuts which they sell on the mainland.
It really is a little bit of paradise.
Porvenir is the capital, where you check in at immigration.
and if you fancy a night off the boat you can always check in to the hotel.
go to the museum,
buy some molas,
or just enjoy the view.
It’s really very nice.
And I think we can all agree that Ju is looking pretty ripped.
Though he can’t hold that pose for long.
Just time for this week’s arty farty competition.
Lyn’s entry is Santa Marta Flowers
and Columbian Coffee Corrugations
And the winer is “Corrugations.” Well done Lyn.
Just time for a gratuitous picture of a squall.
and a paradise island.
Next stop – The Panama Canal.
Hasta luego Boatbloggers®
