On Saturday we took a half day Panama Canal transit cruise. Mike and I did this last year and enjoyed it so much that we wanted Tanner to be able to experience it as well.
Our transit went from North to South from Gamboa’s Pedro Miguel Locks to Minaflores locks ending in Amador Causeway at the Pacific Ocean. While our ship was in each chamber, the water lowered us down 57 feet. Still to this day, the Panama Canal is an engineering marvel.
After the Canal transit, we headed over to Casca Viejo, old Panama from the 17th Century. This is always a fun place to explore, with eateries, shops, outdoor markets with music and a lovely view of downtown Panama City.
