Panama Canal Cruise
1995

Port of departure: Acapulco
A chance to unwind after our flight... a bit of shopping... Phyl twists ankle... but recovers...

And then we boarded and got underway..........

Brief Shopping Stop at Puerto Quetzal, Guatamala
Good fun going ashore via trender, but then never got off the pier... not a big deal!

Puntaranas, Costa Rica
Nice welcome... the rainforest tour was ok: crocadiles, birds, termits, ants.. but did not make our hearts beat fast.
Highlight: a toucan roosting in the bar....

Panama Canal
We approach at dawn... (sailing eastward!)

The huge lake at the 'top' which feeds the water to the canal
and provides much of the crossing is gorgeous...

And, finally, Grand Cayman Island

And so it went -

A unique experience and a pleasure......
