Panama: Felices Fiestas Patrias!

November 1, 2011

FELICES FIESTAS PATRIAS!!!

November 1st marks the beginning of a month of major Panamanian holidays – FIESTAS PATRIAS, which basically translates as “NATIONAL PARTY”. It is a celebration of separation from Columbia (in 1903) and also independence from Spain (in 1821). Several days in November celebrate different events in Panama’s history. So – FELICES FIESTAS A TODO!! Who doesn’t love an excuse for a party that can last for a month!

This morning I awoke to one of the those achingly beautiful mornings – though we are spoiled for beauty here, I still can’t resist these pure mornings…

Here the boys are off in the panga to go get the game boats off the hook to get them set up for the days fishing. Things get started here as soon as there is light to see – at 5:15 a.m. or so.

The sun keeps putting on a show for us…

Off they go into the blue…what a feeling to be out on the water on a day like this…

SIDE NOTE: Edmonton – home for our foursome – was -4 degrees Celsius (that’s 24 Fahrenheit for you Americans) today…hee hee!!

Gorgeous…

Gary poses “Playboy Style” as Doug calls it with a gorgeous dorado…

Gangster Dave and Mate Donar…

Doug takes a snooze to recover from all the fun…

…meanwhile…we’re not sure if Doug’s father Harry is sleeping…kind of looks like the Godfather!!

Here “Gangster Dave” is taking over the ship…(Brian – I TOLD you he would!!)…he is in the Captain’s chair watching the horizon for enemy ships and gunning the throttle…uh oh…

I think the waffle robe adds a certain…je n’e sais quoi…

I got a lovely email from some guests who will be joining us here in a few weeks to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary…”WE ARE SO EXCITED WE CAN HARDLY BREATHE”…Warms the cockles of my heart.

Goodnight from Paradise!

Tobey.
