Isla Pedro Gonzales
22 September 2011
Thursday morning update from Isla Pedro Gonzales. Typical cruising since last we chatted. Hiking in the jungle enjoying tropical flowers, showering under a fresh water waterfall, exploring a world war II airstrip carved into a hill top. We had sundowners with an eccentric author now sailing Panama with a succession of female "book editors" on one night, and cocktails aboard a mega yacht based in Punta Cocos that is a floating hotel for millionaire sport fishermen who fly in for the catch and release bill fishing. In between we did more hiking, kayaking, and snorkeling. Just your typical cruising!
Update on the "papaya" we cut it open and the smell was not pleasant so we tossed it. It appeared to be a cross between a melon and a squash, but the juice actually caused a rash on my arm.
Also full disclosure the "no seeums" are now biting the men as well so we have reverted to screens at night with a bug coil burning.
A few more days out here in the Perlas and then back to Panama city to get ready for the trip to Ohio.
