Well, now. That was interesting. Definitely one of the more intense 48 hours we’ve ever experienced — and that includes anchor-dragging (ahem) in just a few lovely anchorages here and there, hitting a rock that wasn’t supposed to be there off Isla Parida in Panama, having our engine break down in the middle of a becalmed night off Costa Rica, putting diesel into our water tanks in El Salvador, and hitting wicked squalls off Key West on our final passage home. (But I digress – our cruising adventures are the stuff of another blog, coming soon!) And speaking for both of us, every fiber of our being is intensely, satisfyingly exhausted.
So I’m sitting here in our little apartment in Boquete, Abuelo rum drink in my hand, and wondering what you lovely blog readers would like to hear about next. I’m plotting a real post soon, just need to catch my breath. In the meantime, here are a few highlights:
– Flying the girls on Copa was absolutely seamless and perfect. I can’t say enough about how professional, caring, and competent the Copa cargo people were.
– Next time we fly a red-eye we’ll at least try to get seats that recline!
– Jose and his wife, Luci, of Golden Frog, were absolutely wonderful. Luci handled the paperwork with the Panamanian authorities and they ferried us to our hotel in Panama City last night, and then drove us cross-country to Boquete today. Jose, you deserve all the rave reviews you’ve gotten and you’ll get one more from us.
