Back to Panama

With the four day holiday after our boat got splashed (the Easter Holidays), we could not check out of Costa Rica until Monday March 24. We left on the next afternoon’s high tide, negotiating the shallows in the late afternoon. Lanikai continued on to Bahia Herradura where we dropped the hook at 9:30 PM Tuesday evening. We spent the next two days in Herradura making minor repairs and adjustments that turned up on the short first passage after the launch. Friday, March 28, we moved on to Bahia Drake and after resting there one day continued on to Panama, on Sunday. We are now anchored in the south west corner of Isla Parida after a very comfortable 22 hour passage. We even enjoyed a nice 7-hour light wind sail Sunday afternoon without the noisy motor.
