Bahia Honda, Panama
07 March 2017
Fastest stop ever.
Several people had stopped in Bahia Honda before. There was supposedly a 'tienda' to reprovision and a guy was reported to come to your boat delivering fresh fruit and vegetables, diesel, ice or other stuff if available. We unfortunately did not see 'Domingo' in the short 2 hours that we were there.
Now mind you, it took us over an hour to get inside the bay and around the little island where the town is located but what we found when we got there was less than we expected. Brian and I were hoping for some wi-fi because we've been without it for about a week now, but I wasn't holding out hope. There was a small 'internet café' that Brian checked out while I 'shopped' but he came back and said that it was pretty slow so we packed up our less than bountiful bootie and hauled ass. Our take from the grocery store was 10 bags of black tea, 1 can pork n beans, 1 roll of paper towels, 6 potatoes, and one whole chicken (semi frozen) chopped up in several pieces of equal size with no clear way to recognize what is what, Brian calls this lawn mower chicken. No fruit, no veggies, no diet cokes. I did come away with a picture of a cute little chicken running around, someone's future dinner no doubt.
