Right after we broke for dinner we entered the lock. I didn’t realize we hadn’t passed through yet, so I went to change instead of going out to the heli pad on the bow of the ship. Luckily the bow cam was on in my room and I saw us. Didn’t have time to get to the heli pad, though!
Kate, Mykal, Harvey and I tendered into Panama for dinner. We were at this little pier for yachts and it was nice. We had shrimp right out of the ocean and I think Harvey has a steak. We also had grilled calamari that was AWESOME! (Like the bag? Helen made it for me for my birthday!)
Okay so that was my long picture narrative of the Panama Canal. I had a lot of fun and saw some cool stuff. I also got a certificate saying I had been through. I think our fee to travel though was $144,000.00. I KNOW! I watched a documentary that said the highest fee was over a million dollars and the smallest was 34 cents when a guy swam the Canal.
heh heh I think I’ll stick to cruising through.
Okay next up is Costa Rica and Mexico. I’m working my way around.
I believe I had cruised 3000 nautical miles at this point. Whew!
