This is the first site we see when leaving the marina for the anchorage staging area to pickup our transit adviser.
made it to the staging area and preparing fenders for "nesting" (rafting)
all boats are ready as night falls and we are waiting 3 hours for the advisers to board our boats.
our adviser arrives by pilot boat, a near miss at night
the canal entrance ahead
