Up early and worked on prepping the boat once again for our transit today. Received confirmation for our meetup time with our crew and advisor. Then after lunch the agent showed up and said we have an advisor for today but no one for tomorrow. That meant we would have gone thru this half of the canal and had to wait in the Lake for a few days before we got another advisor. We would have to take care of the three line handlers. So the agent decided to just cancel. The holidays are on and the 200+ advisors were all on vacation. I was not happy. I prepped two big meals and needed a bigger freezer to keep it. So, instead, we invited fellow cruisers to join us for dinner. The weather was rainy this morning, but in-between, we took a walk in back of the boat yard. There was the original battery from WWI was there on top of a hill looking out over the coast line. It is pretty much jungle and as Mark said, he didn't bring a machete to cut thru the over growth of trees and bushes. There were huge lines of ants and many other bugs, so we turned back. We kept seeing leaves falling down from the trees. That was the monkeys. It was good to see them, but they were high up in the trees. The other strange sound in the jungle is coming from the Howler Monkeys. Apparently they don't like the rain. Despite the rainy overcast day, it was still very hot. We managed to cool off in the pool. We will join the cruisers for a pot-luck dinner tomorrow night to ring in the New Year. Wishing everyone a very special day!

We are both computer folks that were live aboard cruisers back in the 90s. We settled in Jacksonville Florida after escaping the great white north and cruising the Bahamas, T&C, DR and points south down to Trinidad. [...]
Extra: Charabia is a French slang word for nonsense or gibberish. It derives from Arabic "sharab" which means alcohol.When you drink (too much) alcohol, you start talking Charabia. The original owners named her and Mark liked the name so it stuck.
