We left Utila, Honduras in the Bay of Islands for the over night sail to the Rio Dulce. Actually mostly a big motor as wind was almost nonexistent. We arrived in Livingston right at low tide. Fortunately we only draw 4 feet so no problemo! Most monos are not so lucky and a couple had to wait for the rising tide. Others that draw more than 6 feet choose to wait for the next full moon when they get an extra 2 feet on the high tide. We checked in at Livingston in a driving rain storm. First rain we have seen in 6 weeks. Unfortunately it rained so hard I have no pictures of Livingston. After clearing out we headed into the gorge.
This tree was covered in orchids. Hopefully they will bloom before the time to leave approaches.
