Left Chichime today and headed across to Porvenir to check in. Winds 0 to 3 knots so we motored again on an oily/smooth ocean. Dealt with extremely laid back Immigration, Port Captain and Kuna Yala Officials. As we were pulling out a Kuna fisherman in a dug out canoe sold us 3 crabs for $10.(Yum OH). We headed to the Lemmon Cays hoping to anchor but found that there were a few to many boats for us so we exited and motored to the anchorage between Nuinudup and Banedup in the Eastern Lemmon Cays (still having difficulty pronouncing the "up's" even after 3 years in WA). We had a good stay again at Chichime, plenty of fresh seafood. Went snorkelling Saturday morning to a little island with a single coconut palm (Palm Island) and had it all to ourselves. Sunday it rained nearly all day and we were able to collect a bucket of water which we used part of for showering & washing hair (a real luxury). Couldn't believe Banedup Island as today music could be heard, then tonight 5 multi coloured lights came on. Usually these Kuna Islands don't have any electricity. You usually see touch light only so to see coloured lights we have renamed it "Disco Island". Bought a whole lot of give aways for the Kuna (rice, lolly pops, nail polish etc, etc) but have almost run out as every day a dug out with the Kuna women and kids pull along side wanting to sell their "Molas", so instead of buying them you give them something. Time to go. We have just finished dinner of crab cocktail (sauce not as good as Mum's) and Lobster curry under a full moon and gentle breezes. Life is good.
