Day 5: Panama Canal

Today was the Great Panama Canal – I had heard both “the canal is the most amazing thing ever” and “oh my gosh, it was the most boring thing ever”!  So I wasn’t sure what to expect!  But I have to admit it was pretty cool!!

There was a total of three locks that we went through and it took more than 9 hours to complete!  The canal was built 1913 and is still completely functioning!  Absolutely amazing!!

Some shots of the canal worker people and the cute little choo-choo trains that pull the boats through!

This is the Centennial Bridge, no idea what its for, but here it is!  Apparently this is the “new” Bridge of America.

There were a lot of people at the Panama Visitors Center watching us go through the final set of locks.

This afternoon I took a little nap, I was exhausted!

Alex looking like the most beautiful person i have ever seen before the show we saw tonight.

Okay I’m to tired to even add my signature to the end of this post! See ya later!
