Land Ahoy!

20 March 2017 | Shelter Bay Marina, Panama
Gillian
Hooray we are here! We arrived at Shelter Bay marina at 2pm this afternoon and we are snug in our berth, after a night and morning of blustery rain showers. We had very little wind last night and had to motorsail for most of the night, and of course we were in a hurry to get to the marina before dusk.
It is Neil's birthday today - his first at sea. I, on the other have had two at sea and did not have the luxury of landfall at the end. So an excellent treat for him - arriving in such an exotic place with another year of adventure ahead of him!
Shelter Bay marina is on the opposite side of the bay from Colon, so to get there we have to get a bus or taxi. The marina itself is in a pretty little place with little development except for a small hotel, a mini store, a swimming pool and the boatyard.
We have already booked a haulout for Wednesday and weather permitting we hope to leave for the San Blas islands on Thursday. We plan to spend 10 days there before we do the Panama Canal crossing.
Tomorrow we will head into Colon to get our passports stamped. It should be interesting. We have heard it is not the safest place so will not be walking around but using taxis. Will keep you posted...
