Title: Photos from the first week!

As promised here are some pics of our first week in Bocas. A big storm came through last night and this morning we have had tropical rain showers all morning. There are gale force winds forecasted off the N Coast of Columbia all week so we are delaying our sail down to Colon until the weekend.

We picked up a second hand Yamaha 15hp 2 stoke engine yesterday so we are now fully mobile with our new dinghy, and can nip in and out of bocas very easily for suppiles, which is great.
