Panama City to Wetappo Creek

January 23rd, 2012

The last two mornings here in Panama City have been extremely foggy. Each morning you can hear the fog horns in the distance as the boats come into port. We waited until the fog was all clear before we departed. We will make a short trip for an overnight anchorage in Wetappo Creek.

Wetappo Creek is a swampy area full of wildlife and beautiful scenery. Logan knapped during our trip and woke as we were setting the anchor. She looked around and asked “Where are we?”

“Wetappo Creek. Isn’t it beautiful?”, I replied.

“Oh, no! Not another creek! Will we have internet and cell service out here?”

“We have internet but no cell service.”

She seemed okay to have one of the two.

As we settled in we observed lots of fish jumping around us as if they were feeding on something. I took the opportunity to put my line in the water in hopes of catching dinner.

After an hour and several nibbles I finally snagged one. I was super excited until I reeled it in and saw the size of it. It wasn’t big enough for even one of us to eat.

Logan took over the pole for a while with no luck either. It was getting dark and the bugs were biting so I called it an evening and we grilled steaks instead.

I fished again the next morning with no luck so we weighed anchor and set out for White City.
