Ellida's canal transit was fine. Our pilots were not so friendly as those we had for Kuheli, also not so skilled and we were driven hard sideways into the canal wall by our attached catamaran at one stage, but that's what the tires are for and no damage was done.
We are anchored at Playita, waiting for the shops to open on Manday to buy more fuel and oil filters. The good thing about the wait is that good winds are coming on Wednesday, so we will have a better run to Galapagos.
That is the Shelter Bay Port Captain with the iguana he keeps in his brief case! And the picture of the canal bank is actually a pic of a large caiman.
