Blog & Photos - December 2010

2nd December - After having spent almost 2 weeks in the East Lemmon Cays meeting new friends, snorkelling, kayaking and spearing fish, we said goodbye and headed for Isla Linton.  The weather had deteriorated quite a bit with a lot of rain.  The trip was lumpy with not much wind but we did manage to sail most of the way.  We arrived fairly late in the day at Linton and spent a rolly night at anchor. 

3rd December - We were not booked into Panamarina for a few days but they were able to take us early - as we arrived into the bay we were met by Jean-Paul and Nemi who did a very professional and efficient job of getting us on to the mooring.  We spent the weekend cleaning and sorting and trying to dry everything out before we left the boat.

6th December - Left the boat early and had a very wet taxi drive to Panama City. 

7th - 9th December - Spent running around Panama City looking for bits and pieces for the boat - managed to organise everything to pick up on our return and were intending to go into the old part of town to do a bit a tourist stuff but unfortunately the whole time we were there it poured with rain and Matt caught a cold!

10th December - Left the torrential but warm rain of Panama and flew back to the UK to cold and snow!

11th - 15th December - Spent a very pleasant week with the young Mr & Mrs Findlay who were busy trying to get their house sorted - lots of moving around and DIY going on! 

16th December - Train to Plymouth to stay with Helen. 

17th December - Helen's graduation ceremony - Dr Helen S Findlay - official at last! 

18th - 19th December - Despite the cold and snow on the ground we had some good sunny days and went for some very pleasant walks around the Plymouth area. 

20th - 22nd December - Caught the train to Leeds to visit Jean's brother Graham and wife Colleen - only took us 9 hours to get there!

23rd - 29th Back in Plymouth and Christmas shopping and lovely traditional Christmas dinner with Helen. 

29th - 31st December - Southampton with Matthew and Jo again before heading to Gatwick for our flight back to Panama on 1st January.
