Playa Grande

Yesterday we moved south to Isla San Jose and anchored off Playa Grande near the southern-most anchorage in the Perlas Islands.  The trip was a fast one as the winds gave us a nice reach and the current was with us.   We are getting a nice southern swell into the anchorage but great protection from the NW winds that have started blowing into our anchorage on Isla Casaya.  We arrived about noon and spent the rest of the day reading and on computers.   This is going to be our jump off point to cross the Bay of Panama and around Punta Mala, heading to the islands of Western Panama.  The plan is to head out as soon as it gets light tomorrow, Sunday, morning.

The ITCZ has moved south and so we should be in for less rain and more sunny skies which we have been having this last week.
