This is a montage of video originally used in a blog post "Volume up, tone down low, rubbish on the radio" a reference to the lyrics of carter USM. May have violated some girl scouts. This introduces the first use of my "Indian Jones animated map thingy". Location: the Caribbean Sea.
Scene Six - Ditch Crawling
Shot in transit through the panama canal by me, the animated webcam images are off the Webcam on Mirraflorres locks. A big thank you to Kieran, who's server I bastardised to automatically grab hundreds of images off all the cams as we went through. In shot is a Jeneau being delivered to Australia by a John and Wally. May be Isle de Grace, and Ludmilla as well. You might notice Katrin's feet moving a bit quick, the lock gates are slow, I speeded them up. Location: Panama Canal

Scene Eight - Puerto Ayora
Arrival at Puerto Ayora, great island shit anchorage. Boat looking worried about her anchor in the forground is Lucy Alice, the motoring yacht is a, very relieved, Camomile when your mast's held up by a string and prayer arrival is particularly pleasant.

Always finish on a montage..... Shots of the Darwin Research Station giant tortoises, and more in the highlands of Floreana, the Cliffs and under water shots are on Floreana. The heron in the Fishmarket is in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz.
