Panama Canal Transit

Hey, apparently the ship I'm on, the Norwegian Pearl, will be under the webcam at noon Panama time which is 1:00 pm New York time or 10:00 am Pacific Time (so you can figure it out from there), at www.pancanal.com for anyone with nothing to do at that time wherever you are. I'll try to be on my balcony, two thirds down toward the stern on the port (left) side, if that shows up on the camera, to wave!

Waves madly now just in case I miss you :0)

So, do you have a beautiful, glowing tan yet?

Nah, not yet. I'm not a sun worshipper. Tend to stick to the shade! But even a few minutes a day should give me a decent tan by the time I get home!

Hmmmm - there's a great big container ship there right now - that's not the right one is it?

I waved at it anyway *hg*

Hope you're having fun!

Hey, thanks for waving! As big as the container ship was, apparently our cruise ship is larger -- the largest ever in terms of tonnage to go through the canal! We barely fit!!!! Hope we don't get stuck. I'll wave back tomorrow!

The web cam is fun - I keep going back to look, and wondering why things don't get stuck... not trying to worry you at all!

LOL! We're a tight fit, that's for sure! Just came through the first set of locks into the lake that's 85 feet above the ocean level. The low islands are the tops of what were low mountains. The Captain told us that it cost two hundred thousand dollars (in cash)to pay for the privilege of the transit today.

Luna, Aly isn't replying to my messages, so I'm not sure she's getting them. I'll be at San Pedro port tomorrow (Sunday), on The Norwegian Pearl (white ship with brightly painted design on the hull) -- so you can spot her, in case there are several 'terminals'. I can be outside the terminal at the taxi stand, whenever you like. Say maybe 11:30? I need time confirmation to know when to get off the ship and meet you. Looking forward to seeing both of you!
