Today we completed the first portion off our trip. After 168 hours of continuous cruising, we reached our first destination in Colon Panama. Warbird pulled into Shelter Bay Marine this morning just after sunrise. It is always a good feeling to get your feet on dry land after a long trip. As far as marinas go, Shelter Bay is probably not going to win any awards. The main reason yachts stay here is due to its close proximity to the Caribbean entrance to the Panama Canal. The marina is filled with boats of all types that are crossing between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It usually takes a few days until boats are scheduled to actually make the crossing. In the mean time, we will enjoy the new scenery and knock a thick layer of salt off of Warbird.
