Flamenco Island

After the transit we dropped the pilot and then went alongside the La Playita marina at Flamenco Island.

These used to be islands but are now connected to the mainland with a causeway built using material from the canal widening.

Looking back at the islands, the canal / Balboa approach signal station visible and Panama City in the background.

The marina was prone to surge and we broke three mooring lines while there but otherwise was fine.
