Crisis in Panama

16 April 2008 | Grenada
Scott Trefethen
We have just learned that the Panama canal pilots have banned together and are in the midst of what is being refered to as a slow down. They can't strike so they are deliberately slowing the number of vessels down per day in an effort to get a pay raise. Jean and I are in the midst of scrambling to see what we can do in the mean time. As many of you know our trip is driven by the hurricane seasons and the delays will put us in Panama durring the N Atlantic season. This is something we have hoped to avoid. The panama area is safe enough from storms but a late season canal passage puts us in danger of a Pacific cyclone on the west side.
We are speaking with experts on what this may mean for the rest of our trip this year and will keep you informed here on our site.

Isla Saona off the DR is a beautiful nature preserve with that Pacific isle feeling.
These crabs gather in the shallows on the desert islands just off Puerto Ricos south coast. They feed on detritus at the high tide mark. Some can jump as far as two feet when disturbed by walking near them.
