If you're lookin' for a cool Panama hat, Jaime is the guy to talk to. The Panamanian land baron took time away from his busy schedule for a mellow day on the water. Good times.

Bahia Concepcion on the second day of our 1,100+ mile adventure from San Clemente to  the East Cape.

99% of the road was good, two lane highway but we did run into a few spots that were washed out after the recent hurricanes.

The fishing was unusually slow this time around.

The reflection tells it all.

Pics will have to wait because of limited bandwidth here. Our trip was amazing, 14 and 12 hours of driving in two consecutive days with a night at the "Rice and Bean" motel.
Baja is mucho green, looks like Hawaii with cactus. Water is in the mid-80's and we've been busy getting all set up here at the casa. There was very little hurricane damage here but tons of sand has vanished from in front of the home. Adios amigos.

Hamilton Cove, Little Harbor, Buttonshell and Avalon, four stops in four nights. Yes, we did a lot of moving around for various reasons. Our plan was to spend one night in Avalon and then head to Little Harbor for the rest of the trip. Avalon was packed because of an air show the next day so we settled in at a bumpy Hamilton Cove. In the morning we were off to Little Harbor. Unbelievably, there were no other boats there. The anchors were set and soon we noticed a few kelp flies, or should I say they noticed us. We swatted until the sun set and decided two days of this would be too much. The flies won and we left the next morning, back to the front side. Our departure for Dana Point was aborted because of dense fog so it was back to Avalon for our final night, a day in the life for a couple of ocean-going vagabonds.

This is why we extended an extra night.
