Reflecting on our days in Bocos del Toro, Panama

The end of our vacation was spent relaxing a few days with a friend who retired, escaped the rat race in the USA, and now lives near Bocas del Toro, Panama.  I am not sure if he & his wife got their inspiration from a Jimmy Buffett song or not but the lyrics of “The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful” keeps playing through my head as I reflect on my days spent in this delightful little community… just substitute “Atlanta” for “New York” and “Ken & Vonne” for “Billy Clyde”.

“He’s going back to New York pack it up and let everyone know.  It was something that he should have done such a long time ago. Still time to start a new life in the palm trees.  Billy Clyde wasn’t insane.  And it doesn’t work out there’ll never be any doubt that the pleasure was worth all the pain”

We’re back from Panama… here are a few photos.

We just spent over a week in the country of Panama.  The first part of our vacation we were on a tour with Caravan Tours, the final few days of our vacation we spent with a friend who Pete use to work with but he now has retired and moved to Panama full-time.  This blog will address the Caravan Tour.  I couldn’t be more happy with the tour.  It was exactly what I wanted.  We visited the locks several times and even went through some of them in a small ship.  The hotels were great, the food was good, and we learned a thing or two along the way.  Here are some pictures highlighting the tour:
