Neptune's Gift

26 March 2014 | Zapitilla Islands, Panama

Dawn was breaking in the east while a full set of stars were still slightly visible west. We had near perfect wind to give us a beam reach. Centime was sailing so smoothly, and with the fresh wind filling our sails and blowing my hair, and my brother by my side, I was feeling very lucky.
We were on a 130nm route from the Panama Canal entrance to the Zapitilla islands off of Bocas, and we had completed about two thirds of the passage.

Dennis typically does the fishing on Centime however he was asleep below, and with the approaching dawn I thought I would test my luck. I rigged up “Joanie’s rod” with a lure called the “cedar plug.”

By the time the sun was fully up I reeled in a fish, my first!! It was a 2 ½ foot, 10 pound Backfin tuna.

This evening anchored off of Zapitilla Island, Dennis has made a most delicious dinner while Vern, sister Sarah and I enjoyed wine in the cockpit. He seared the steaks, added a soy reduction sauce and served them over mashed potatoes. Tonight, the fish is delicious, the view is amazing and the company is just the best. Neptune has treated us well.
