Time for another update.
Tomorrow we set off for Ecuador, this will take about 5 days so communications will be limited till the end of next week.
We are just waiting to get our passports back from the officials and have meantime bought some courtesy flags for Polynesian islands, Tonga and Vanuato.
Makes it seem all the more real to have these on board and ready.
Panama has been very exciting to visit again but we are ready for the off and will be glad to get sailing again, It gets a bit hot on land without the cooling effect of the sea.
Hope you like the photos.
We went Big Game fishing to celebrate Paul's special birthday on 5th. The fish is a yellow fin tuna, about 10lbs in weight, had some last night with saute potatoes and parsley sauce....delicious. The birds in flight are the beautiful pelicans.
Also you can see pictures from the carnival. "You can only have one of those huge deep fried cakes senor!! "
The fakir who lay on the nails rather obviously shoved a large piece of cardboard down his trousers before lying down!
The Police who ride two up on motor bikes with the pillion carrying a machine gun...bit scary!
We went to a mall to do some shopping and were amazed by the proportions of the models in the window...they certainly have an inflated opinion of themselves, Robert was weighing them up as you can see!!
Love to all
