Now that Otto has finally passed safely by, the offshore wind and wave forecast for the coming week looks good for us to finally move!
We’re raising our 350 feet of chain this morning (we were anchored in 70 feet of water), and will begin heading toward the San Blas Islands. Along the way, we plan to anchor in Escudo de Veraguas, a small, isolated island off the coast, which is part of the Bocas del Toro province.
After leaving Escudo de Veraguas, we’ll visit the historic town of Portobelo. The ruins of Spanish forts there have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We’ve been in Bocas del Toro for almost four months, longer than any other stop on our journey so far. Our stay has been wonderful, seeing many beautiful sights and making new friends. We’ll miss the Bocas area very much, but are excited to be moving on again, and to visit new places.
Keep your eye on our Where Are We Now page, to track us as we move!
