Its funny to be at the various last boaters gatherings and everyone talking about "seeing you in the river." We say,"no, we're heading back to Panama." For us, the river doesn't hold any appeal. You are stuck in the river (yes, fresh water) but its hot and there is nothing to really do unless you do inland travel (and it's pretty warm months to do that!) But every boater has his/her own style – that's what makes it so interesting. There are a few friends heading this way (on their way to the river) so we hope to connect with them prior to their getting river bound.
So over the next several weeks, we'll have our run of the Bay Islands. Our guests Catherine and Jim will be heading down from Canada to visit starting May 12 and we are very excited about their visit. That means a fishing tournament and hopefully the fish will cooperate this time.
We're still in West End, Roatan and will probably move on in the next day or two to another anchorage on Roatan. This year, we haven't yet been to Calabash Bight, so we'll probably head there. The snorkeling is really interesting there, so we'd like to explore it. And perhaps kill a few lionfish and get a dinner!
