Next stop panama

The Panama Canal was a highway of ships....



You had to wait for your schedualed turn to go through the canals



These locomotives hooked on to our ship and tugged us through the gates



It was cool to see the next ship



 right behind us in the lock we just passed through



Sorry for the dirty windows
(I was feeling right at home...just like my windows!!)



Barges and tankers were passing through the bigger locks besides us



It took us all day to pass through three sets of locks



 There were many difficult times building this with mudslides and  malaria,



It was impressive to see what engineers have created



We got to see a ship pass though besides us....



When it was completely in the lock....



The waters were released under this bridge...



so the gates could be opened to continue through



It was a massive amount of water churning through...



There were thousands of tourists on land watching us go through....



Once on the other side, we were now in the Pacific Ocean



Good bye, Atlantic!!
