We are currently exploring the Naguargandup Cays – a long row of many islands with beautiful sand beaches and many palm trees and numerous reefs. We started on the Western end in Salardup and are currently at the eastern end of the chain in Canbombia. On this island we've met the Saila (chief) and his family. In fact, Carmelina, his wife, has made both Lorna and Barbara lovely ankle bracelets of the colorful beads. The Saila has given us permission to walk around the island (without charging Kuna fees).
Michael and Dave have done lots of snorkeling and hunting and all of us have done some reef exploration. The bugs unfortunately have seem to made a meal of Dave – but he's being a great sport and not complaining much. Must be all that sweet smelling bakery goods and chocolate he's around all the time! We're having a good time, eating well and even playing a few games. But mostly relaxing and enjoying the islands and the water.
Monday we'll head back to Nargana for their Tuesday morning flight. We'll do a river adventure on Monday up the Rio Diablo. The weather has been magnificent – a steady breeze at night has made sleeping comfortable. We hear it's cold in Ohio – so it's a good time to visit the tropics for Dave and Lorna.
