~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It has been an amazing first week here in Providencia.  We rested and have made many new friends.  The anchorage is wonderful with great holding, calm water and a steady breeze to keep us relatively cool.

We will go form here to Panama, planning to arrive around the beginning of June and stay there for the foreseeable future.  The boat has many broken bits... The SSB is broken again, the watermaker is acting up and as, we mentioned in the previous blog, the auto helm is completely snafued...  that said, we are still in paradise and we will be fine and remain very happy...  When we get to Panama we hope to deal with all these problems...

For now, here are some pictures of our first week here in Providencia:
Our Anchorage...



Lots of stairs!

incredible views!

Lots of exercise!
