Seems like a great idea, .....if you ever get the itch again you could head out for a couple weeks.

There is plenty of treasure around the Cape Canaveral area. Go find one of the lost 1715 Fleet wrecks.

Yesterday we went out on the Rio Chagres in search for the ruins of Venta de Cruces, the location that the Spanish loaded Silver and Gold onto barges to take to up river to Fort de San Lorenzo, and then onto the king’s warehouse in Portobelo for storage until the Spanish fleet would arrive.

We decided to attempt this by river since it’s about a seven-mile hike through the jungle.

Unfortunately we were unable to find a good landfall near the location due to about 100 yards of floating islands of vegetation between us and our objective. We could have used a good old-fashioned Florida air boat, but I have not seen any of those boats down in this part of the world.

We did finally make landfall a couple of klicks further up river, and discovered the remains of what appeared to be an old fish camp, all the wood long since rotting away and being consumed by the jungle.

She is one of those jet drive boats, named the La Perla Azul, or the Blue Pearl in English.

So true, it looks like we will have to take a seven mile hike through the jungle to get there.

First, I am happy to report that the work on the website is coming along very well and looking mighty fine. We are basically building a totally new site on another server so that when we go live with the new software all of our files will integrate with a minimum of down time. We don't have a go live date just yet but we are getting closer.

I am heading back to Florida in less than two weeks so I can come do my civic duty and cast my votes for those I decide are worthy of my vote.Then I will hang out for a few weeks to spend Thanksgiving at home with family and friends. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday, so I am really looking forward to that. I just hope the red tide is gone from the Space and Treasure coast beaches by the time I get back home.

I am planning to retire from my overseas contractor work in the next 4 to 6 months and returning home to Florida, so this next year is going to be exciting to say the least as I put Panama and a life time of working for other people in my rear view mirror.

Well, I made it out of Panama this morning and just touched down in Atlanta. I have like an 8 hour layover here until I head into Melbourne Florida, but I will be sleeping in my own bed tonight. It's good to be back in the USA again.
