Toboga Island

About 8 miles from Panama City is the island of Toboga.  We took a slow, definitely not U.S. Coast Guard approved boat ride to the island one day.  The village is really adorable and houses the second oldest church in the Western Hemisphere.

It took a lot of coaxing after Atley's previous beach day disaster but he did snorkel a little with his dad by his side.
The beach was a little dirty, with lots of trash washing up from the city which you can see on the horizon.  But, besides the aluminum cans, junkies' needles, and trash bags Atley found a crab and a girlfriend who prompted him to write in his journal, "Today, I left my heart in Panama.  Saying goodbye is like losing my best friend."

Despite the sea sickness and hepatitis we loved our day in Toboga.
