Friday we got up early to the cadence of marching drums and followed the noise to town where they were having day two of Panamanian Independence Day. Typical small town parade, town officials followed by school children two marching drum units and various clubs etc, marching all over town.
We upped anchor for Cocos Banderas. Just another example of small islands fringed with reefs, white sand and clear water.
Saturday we moved once again to the "swimming pool"…. You guessed it turquoise water and white sand with small coconut fringed islands. This is what we imagined when we set out to go cruising.
There are about 60 cruising boats divided among hundreds of islands, but by Christmas we are told it will be 3 times that number. By then Sound Effect will most likely have moved on to Roatan or Belize.
Kokomo however is planning to stay here for a long time. They have a more open ended cruising plan and are going to take advantage of staying here for a season. Sound Effect is moving on before the infamous Christmas winds set in.
Sorry we cant show you pictures due to not having internet.
