event at Bocas del Toro marina.
We were not alone.
The dock was crowded with dinghies and cruisers, eagerly plucking away at pineapples and peppers, cauliflower and carrots, onions and oranges, lettuce and green onions, and so much more. The boat was a riot of fresh color. Baskets and bags abounded.
|The local resident accountant for the boat|
was young, but efficient.
The veggie boat was spotlessly clean. Their prices were decent and produce was weighed, priced and bagged with a smile.
|Cruiser's carry-aways were as varied|
and colorful as the produce.
|Something for everyone at the veggie boat.|
The experience brought back a small pang of nostalgia for our first cruising veggie boat encounter in St. Lucia (click here for that), which came right up to our boat. While a little less personal and convenient than boat side service, we're happy to have a few less scrapes on the side of our boat as a result of having to instead travel a few hundred yards by dinghy instead.
A fair trade-off. (Sorry, Gregory.)
