We were hoping to send our Christmas greetings from Roatan, Honduras but Hurricane Otto had other plans. The tropical wave turned tropical storm churned off our coast for several weeks before turning into a hurricane north of us. That was to be our window for moving north at the end of hurricane season and before the Christmas winds kicked in.
This is the weather forecast for today. The black arrow is where we are in Bocas Del Toro. Along with those 20-25 knot ‘Christmas winds’ you see in red are seas in the 10-12 foot range. So yeah we are staying put for now.
We recently found a very cool spot for lunch. If anyone finds themselves on Isla Colon in Bocas Del Toro be sure to make the trip out to Surf Break @ Paunch. Bring your surf board, stay the night but be sure to try out their tacos. Very original and the menu is always changing. I had pulled pork with a potato mash and Gary had the Frito Taco Pie. Our friends Craig and Liz had the breakfast and southern gravy tacos and we all agreed it was well worth the taxi ride out.
Gary and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
