When the Caribbean was already far behind, we saw an island at daybreak. It turned out to be the San Blas.
We decided to come closer and have a look.
It happened to be inhabited!
We needed to prepare for a visit.
Lena didn’t have to worry, as she’s always ready.
It’s time to set out!
The Kuna Indians were promptly sweeping the beach.
The Big White Man thanked them for that.
We honored them with a visit to the village.
We consulted them on how to sail in complex island water full of coral reefs.
Now they can sail safely… yet, by the rule of thumb and without GLONASS.
They thanked us with gifts.
They asked us to stay longer, but we had things to do. Washing the sides.
Cleaning the pots and pans.
Making a film
About the life of a crab in a sea shell.
About the life of starfish.
How much imagination one needs to think of how to use them!
We even found a happy six-pointed star.
Only a little time left to go for a walk.
To walk the beach.
To have a swim.
Even when you simply walk under the palms
or along the shore
you’ll always find something to your liking.
We got very tired and ate, as they say, whatever there was to eat.
The Panama Canal and the Pacific were ahead.
