Sailing season arrives

We have met some great people here at Marina Nana Juana in the Rio Dulce, some of which are starting to head out for the upcoming sailing season.

Halloween arrived and was a perfect time to have some fun and say goodbyes to those leaving. Everyone made an effort to dress up for the occasion and good times were definitely had.

Wendy even set up a haunted house for everyone to take a tour and was the key feature in a gravestone in the house. The graveyard at Nana Juana had all sorts of surprises, sorry to the Wallabies…..

We also had a party to say goodbye to S/Vs Our Rose and Ta-B who are both heading off to eventually go through to the Pacific. Who knows when we will cross paths again. The girls below looking a tad full and were.

We had another going away over at Sundogs where the Nana Juana people had 3 big tables to say goodbye to S/V Jade, my recent travel companions to Tikal, and hear Phil, from S/V Miss Molly, play at the open Mik on his harmonica.

Marina and Kevin from Lucky Seven were heading out so we had our final yoga class with Marina. She’s one tough woman I’ll give her that, no slacking in her class. We had a big gathering in the Palapa at the Marina where yes they finished the night with their favorite wine, Clos, hence their Halloween costumes.

 

 

Ken from S/V Free Spirit, who had broken his foot, FINALLY left his hotel room, via a luggage cart kitted out with pillows for comfort, to join us in the palapa for farewells to Marina & Kevin.

And so the socializing continues as there’s still plenty of boats here getting ready to depart…..

Bill & Brett arrived in Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas, stayed the one night after sorting a few things out and have already continued on. Here they are coming in to anchor under sail. Good job boys!

Once Brett is back and our final boat jobs are finished we plan on making our way towards Panama where we will spend time cruising the San Blas and Bocas del Torro islands, including doing some inland travel. Well thats the plan and we know how that is always subject to change.

Maybe we will have visitors!! hint hint. Come visit our homeland!
