Count Down

23 March 2010 | La Playita de Amador, Panama
March 23

The God of Happy sprinkled fairy dust on near environs. Items in transit from Miami for Inspiration Lady, Bristol Rose and Anthem arrived late this afternoon for pickup in the morning. 0900 taxi will whisk eager crew to final ties shackling them to Panama. All are planning downwind sail to Isla Taboga, just over an hour and a world south, to install new parts, clean bottoms and initiate general prep for a week at sea. As wind is on Spring Break in Cancun, this could stretch to a fortnight (I love the English).

Hopped around like a frog with ADD collecting last bits and pieces to make next six months completely fault free (sound of unstifled chortle detectable to attentive ears at this point), before afternoon spent running wire for new inverter and DC outlet. As the project required emptying quarter berth and every important tool locker, significant progress was necessary to allow physical movement from companionway (one may even use this solo, Cal) to V-berth. 0700 until 0830 manana will, likely, finish this endeavor and have Anthem catch up with crew in readiness to depart.

Happy three hours at new pizza joint (unaccountably and uniquely, for here, intent upon catering to yachties) involved lively discussion interspersed with round Italian food and adult beverage extending somewhat past cruisers midnight (presently around 2100 - varies with location). Expect to have excellent Chinese tomorrow (who knew?) adjacent to new anchorage.
