Sand Island
Becky/86 degrees, beautiful!
05/04/2012, Near Yansaladup

We didn't go far from the boat and found a new sand spit. We burned garbage and Denny got a hold of the camera. Never know what Denny's up to when he has the camera! Below is his video.

There is a new family on this island now since we were back in Tacoma. We went and introduced ourselves and brought cookies and a beach ball for the children. I counted 5 kids. Not sure the littlest one knew what to do with the ball, so I kicked it to him and he kicked it back. I think he got the idea.


A pain in the arm

Medical help

For the past 4 weeks I have had a pain in my right shoulder, It moves around sometimes giving me a stiff neck and sometimes a sharp pain right at the shoulder joint. But mostly there is a dull pain in the upper part of my arm. I feel like it's a sore mussel but it won't go away. Any ideas from my faithful followers? Sore shoulders make it hard to swim, not so good if you live on a boat. I'm off to the big city to re-supply the boat. Shopping for food takes 36 hours. Were hopping this t rip keeps us supplied for 2 months.

You are in the area-so you might as well start looking for the fountain of youth. If you were fifteen I would have another helpful suggestion.
April Expenses

05/01/2012, yonkiterdup ( yonsalurdup )

For the 1st time since October we paid to park the boat. Six weeks moorage, $200. We also decided to fill up the boat. Fuel $278.50. We had food, $97, booze, $60, internet, $27, shopping, $30, river tour, $40 and drinks at the bar, $29. Total for the month $761.50. Not to bad for a boat that went to 13 different anchorages during the month. Today we are moving the boat to the West Lemons and I will be going to Panama to provision. While I'm gone Becky will be getting alone time on the boat.

hot

It's the last day of April. The wind is blowing 10 knots or less and the sun is shinning. This means it's hot. Fun in the day as you can swim but at night we are sweaty hot. We run the fan but still sometime in the middle of the night I must get up and sit outside to cool down. The good news is I like it. Two years ago we thought cold would be better than hot but now we like hot over cold. Most boats leave to go to their home country for summer. That means the anchorages will be empty for Kokomo and paradise wont be so crowded. While writing this blog a canoe full of Kuna fisherman came by the boat and asked for water. I gave them a gallon and they were on their way. They told me they would bring back fish later, will see.

The big swim

This morning I asked Becky to swim to the sand spit next to our boat when we got back I measured the swim with my gps. We swam just over ½ mile. I would love to tell you how easy it was to do because of the great shape were in but that would be a lie. I told Becky it would seam easier tomorrow. She said that's true as she wasn't doing it again. For the afternoon we explored several Islands we had never been to before. It is a holiday weekend in Panama so several islands have tents on them as hundreds of people from the city have chosen here to vacation. The Kuna are no different than anyone else. It cost $2 to go on land when it's busy. I'm sure by next week all the beached will be free again.

Couple from Germany

We had such a lovely couple from Germany stay with us. Although it rained almost all day one of the three days they were with us, they had a nice time in the San Blas. Below is a short video of their stay with us.

Jungle and River Tour
Becky/raining today
04/27/2012, San Blas

Denny and I went on a jungle tour with two other boats. It was led by Lisa (famous Mola Maker). We hiked the trail along side a river. When we arrived at the end of the trail, there was a swimming pool hole. We jumped into the water and it was about a 10 foot drop. There was tiny fish in the water that would come and nibble on your body. Sometimes it would hurt. As nice as the water felt, I didn't stay in the water very long.

The photo above is when we found flowers that looked like lips. Of course the ladies had to pose for a photo!

Below is a video of our river/jungle tour.



This video below is Lisa's cemetery. Her mom and dad are buried here.

PS - Steve and Rena, you would have loved this tour!

This couple was kayaking by the boat so we asked if they wanted to come aboard. We had a very nice visit with them!

When we were back home in Washington, I asked friends and family for magazines to give to the women here in the San Blas. They are always asking for them to get ideas on making mola's. So I got this stack of magazines, so I'm catching up on all the latest news and gossip.

We enjoyed the company of four lovely ladies on Kokomo! They were so much fun as you will see below!

Southern Cross
Denny/86 degrees, sunny - it never changes
04/22/2012, Salurdup

The days on Kokomo are just as beautiful as ever with the addition of distant thunder and lightning. While Lightning is a cruisers worst enemy it is still fun to watch and listen to. We hope that the summer brings us distant entertainment and safe anchorages. The past few days have been filled with great snorkeling and fascinating sun sets. Then later if you can get up for it, the Southern Cross appears in the ski around 11pm. This is the earliest it has raised above the horizon since we have been here, quite a site.
