... to hit another milestone. As we were entering the Canal de Bocas Del Toro there was a clear change in the color of the water. The colors changed from a blue green to a brown color which stretched for miles. One minute we could see the bottom sea floor and then the water was all cloudy. As we carefully crept in towards land the depth finder would jump between 30-50 to 5 feet. In reality the charts showed us that we ...

I had bread and my 'goober' (Peanut butter and jam mix) plus a grape flavour Fanta! We had just finished when I noticed the sea water roaring towards us. I jumped up and grabbed by bag, Ryan just after, the water had got to my bag but it was just about ok. I quickly got all my camera electronic gear out and got rid ...
