Domingo at Bahia Honda said it was OK to take his photo, but he was very shy in front of the camera.

Graveyard in Bahia Honda.

Big tides in the Pacific - this is a small island off Isla Coiba at low tide.

This is that same island at high tide - no beach!

Bahia Santa Cruz at low tide.

Rich takes advantage of a low tide to burn trash on the beach. We dig a hole in the sand, burn the trash, then cover it.

Then the high tide comes and washes away the ashes.

Rich is excited that we've got a big fish - until we ID it as a jack crevalle, which isn't good eating, so he (the fish) goes back in the sea.

Jan steering Slip Away with the autopilot dial.

Rich with Terra Firma and Icarian on the beach at Isla Espiritu Santo in the Perlas Islands.

Isla Contadora in the Perlas Islands - signs of civilization.

Crime doesn't seem to be a big problem at Isla Contadora.

Hermy & Jack from Iwa - it was good to see them again in Panama City.

We didn't use our dinghy at Balboa Yacht Club, so we depended on these friendly lancha drivers to give us a ride to shore.

Terra Firma arriving home after a day in the city. (Even in Balboa Yacht Club, we were moored next to each other.)

El Gato Supremo Jake from Carina has a sleepover on Slip Away while his parents line handle for a friend's Canal transit.
