February 15,2017

Deciding to take in the "Panama Canal" and "City Tour" should fill in most of the day for us. Keeping busy is a must, we are all itching to get on the road again. We depart at 9:00 am, it is a hot and sunny day, perfect for sightseeing. At the "Canal" we first take in a short narrative film on the history, engineering and building of this amazing waterway. The "Museum" is just as fascinating, four floors of history, even a navigation simulator, which adds to the aura. We were lucky enough to witness a "Cruise Ship" in the locks. Watching it rise to the next level, gates open and then proceeds forward with the aid of the "Mules" that are tethered to the ship. A most interesting morning to say the least. Our driver, was very informative as we took in the city, harbours and various areas of town. Back at the hotel it was time for a dip in the pool, which is located on the roof, and has a great view of the modern downtown area. It wouldn't be long before Trevor made an appearence. Wow we thought, he made it, as he had to go on a entirely different route, to get himself and bike to "Panama" a slow boat up the coast with several stops in various villages along the way. He would also like to express his gratitude to Magnolia, her son Victor, and the staff at the "Costa del Sol Hotel" who helped him in "Turbo".  Al Nino
